Religion is a key part of the global human experience. It motivates people and influences how they behave and make decisions.

Regardless of whether you follow any faith tradition, being “religiously literate” will help you navigate our complex and diverse society. Having knowledge about major religious traditions can prepare you for professional life after college.

Join four recent UW-Madison alumni as they discuss how their understanding of various faiths, and their interest in interreligious conversation, has helped them succeed in their careers of choice.
