Best Answer

Theology would cover those to religions and a few others.

AnswerSome kind of comparative religions degree. AnswerNone worth having a degree in. Probably the closest would be philosophy. Keep in mind that the only place you can get a job using a degree in philosphy is if that degree is a Phd, and the only place you will get paid to use that degree is in an educational institute. Since most colleges and universities already have someone teaching philosopy under some kind of contract it means that the odds of you getting such a job aren't very good. AnswerIt would be indeed a comparative religions degree. However, I from the way you phrase the question I daresay that you have no idea about what is a pagan religion. You seem to be identifying pagan with non-Christian.

This is not true. A pagan religion is one that is based in the adoration and reverence of something or someone contained in creation (Most oriental religions). A non-Pagan religion is one based in the adoration of the Creator. (Most western religions).

This means that a comparative religions degree should cover pagan religions as well as Christianism, Judaism and Islam.


It depends upon the university. As mentioned above, you'd probably be pursuing a doctoral degree. The term you're looking for might be Phenomenology of Religion which can be pursued in some seminaries or in some universities' religion or philosophy departments. Phenomenology goes deeper than simply comparing different religious doctrines. Such a study can be pursued from either a secular angle, from a religious (including evangelical Christian) viewpoint, or from an agnostic viewpoint. However, wherever you start, you need to try to have a sympathy for the aspirations and felt hungers of all who claim to be human.
