Religious studies programs may focus on a particular faith, or they may focus on a particular context of faith. Undergraduate programs in religious studies can teach students about the practical aspects of ministry, such as church outreach and interpretation of religious texts; other programs look more at the philosophical or sociological aspects of religion. Graduates can become lay-ministers and church administrators. The master's degree is the minimum requirement for ordination or ministry licensure in some settings. These degrees discuss counseling, leadership, evangelism, and other ministry issues. A doctorate degree can be used to do research into a particular aspect of religion or to prepare for ministry, pastoral, and counseling roles.
