What is an MA in Religious History? This master’s degree gives students the opportunity to study religions and their impact on societies and cultures. Scholars can examine ancient religions and how they have changed over time. They may also learn about the common roots of many religions, including Christianity, Islam and Judaism. As they study the differences and similarities between religions, they can also gain knowledge about how religion has impacted arts and literature, cultural movements, social causes, economics, wars and conflict resolution.

Students can apply their knowledge of research techniques in many careers. They may also learn writing skills that can be applied both personally and professionally. With a background in religious history, graduates may be able to provide insight and background to local religious organizations.

Several factors go into determining the final cost of a master’s degree, including the length of the program, whether travel is required, and the location of the university. Degrees earned online can also vary in cost from degrees earned in the classroom.

Many graduates choose careers in academia, including adjunct instructor, research associate, lecturer and professor. Others choose public affairs manager, executive director, or senior policy analyst positions for non-profit or government organizations with a focus on religious issues. Students may also find positions as clinical ethicists or spiritual care counselors. Those with an interest in writing may consider careers with religious publications as content writers, editors, researchers or content managers.
