Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
This is perhaps the most frequently asked question we receive, since students and their parents are interested in the career outlook for RS majors and minors. Like other liberal arts majors, the RS major does not lead directly to a career, as do majors in professional programs such as Business or Journalism. But what liberal arts majors do get is a broad and extensive background in writing, critical thinking and analysis, and oral communication. These are skills which can be applied to any job or career. Thus, the RS major provides excellent pre-professional preparation for fields such as law, teaching, medicine, counseling, social work, conflict resolution, international business, foreign service, journalism, various ministries, or careers in public service or non-profit organizations.
