There's something new under the sun. While many American colleges have departments of religious studies, Pitzer College, a small liberal arts school in Claremont, CA will probably be the first to have a department of secular studies. Starting this Fall, the Southern California campus will offer courses with titles like God, Darwin and Design in America, Bible as Literature and Anxiety in the Age of Reason. (Full Article)

What kind of jobs do you get with degrees in religious studies, literature, writing, art, philosophy, etc...? Sometimes it is not about the degree but about how it teaches you to think critically and on the fly. This may be a very useful degree indeed!
