The field of religious studies explores religious beliefs, behaviors and institutions across cultures. It is a journey through the liberal arts that combines the study of philosophy, literature, history, sociology and fine arts.

Studying religion introduced me to the impact that religion, or the reaction to religion, has had on many societies. This was particularly useful as I traveled and worked throughout many different countries and cultures. My background in religious studies helped me gain jobs throughout Europe, the Middle East and America due to my ability to navigate through different cultural norms.
