The University of Arizona Religious Studies program, helped me expand my research skills and knowledge about other cultural worldviews, and belief systems. I studied the three Abrahamic religions in the areas of Middle Eastern Studies, Judaic Studies and Christian Studies respectively. I furthered my formal educational knowledge of Buddhism, and this program of study expanded my ability to work with people from all walks of life. The copious amount of curriculum group work prepared me to do high-level project management. Ultimately, this allows me to contribute astutely to my organization's mission.
