A wide range of career options

Our alumni find work across a huge diversity of careers.

"I chose theology at Cambridge because it is less conventional than other universities' theology programmes. The opportunity to choose the subjects that interested me, as well as the fantastic support  of my supervisors, made the course intellectually rewarding and a great foundation for my own career.
The academic rigour, sensitivity and confidence I gained from studying theology was useful preparation for work on international policy issues where I regularly need to appreciate different perspectives, assess evidence and make coherent arguments."
