Why is Theology worth Studying?
As this article outlines; the subject has evolved dramatically over the past decades into a dynamic, multi-disciplinary subject where students can study Theology through the lens of Politics, Sociology, History or Psychology. Degree programmes are also far more flexible and students can elect modules in other complimentary subjects as well as studying abroad (as I did in Sweden).
Kate Rowe writes; “This evolution of the subject can lead to careers in law, youth work, teaching, social work, lobbying, politics, the arts, business and senior management; and applies the meta-physical to the everyday”. So if you like RS, but worry what you would do in the long-run – don’t! You will be a great critical thinker, highly empathetic, skilled at rhetoric, and highly employable!
