Major in Religion and Culture
"Religion and Culture will not only give you a deep, abiding connection to the world’s great intellectual and moral traditions but will give you the intellectual skills you need to deal with an evermore interconnected, complex world by linking these traditions to their historical, philosophical, cultural and political contexts... Being able to approach this incredibly complex space with ample imagination and a creative, multidisciplinary mindset is crucial for discovering opportunity where others see only noise."
