As nationally and internationally-known scholars with successful careers, our faculty members have a wealth of expertise to share about academic work in the study of religion, graduate programs in religion and related disciplines, and more.

In addition to consulting individual faculty members about these issues, we strongly encourage you to attend regular events devoted to the following topics:

  • Internships:orients students to the CAS Field Studies in the Humanities course, which provides curricular support for student internships.Offered in the spring semester.
  • Career night: provides students with connections to UVM Religion alums who can offer support and advice for translating the skills they’ve learned in religion studies to potential job alternatives. Usually offered in March.
