Baylor offers many study abroad programs. One in particular that is ideal for Religion, Philosophy and Great Texts majors is Baylor in St. Andrews. Located in Scotland, it is a wonderful opportunity for students to study at one of the oldest and most prestigious universities in the world.

Majoring in Religion offers access to many career options. Many students continue their education by attending medical school, seminary, or graduate school. Some students enter careers like teaching, medicine, law, business, politics, publishing, writing, and social service.

As a service to students interested in ministry, Baylor designed the Ministry Guidance Program. This program clarifies and affirms the call to ministry and introduces students to ministry as a vocation. The primary emphasis of the Ministry Guidance Program is academic studies related to ministry, hands-on experience in local settings and fellowship.
