so i finally decided that if i can get an education i want to major in religion (and possibly minor in photography). but the only jobs we could think of would be to teach or to preach. i want to study all religions, not just christianity.
any other ideas where a religion major could get me?

I know an author who majored in religion and English. You might be able to get a government job, something dealing with diplomacy across cultures. There used to be lots of jobs where they just wanted you to show that you could complete a degree program, not so much right now. I would think you should focus on finding a school that offers what you want because that could be very hard. You aren't going to find much of anything at state universities and the church affilicated universities are going to be only about their own religion. So if you can find one that offers a broad view, call them and ask where their alumni are employed.
