Religious studies major Jennifer Robinson Ewing ’05 is an attorney in Paoli, Pa.



“My father is an Episcopal priest, so religion has always been a large part of my life,” said Ewing, who attended law school at Temple University and currently works at a boutique litigation firm in Paoli, Pa. “I chose to become a religion major in order to get a more well-rounded perspective on my own religion, as well as learn about other religions.”

The religious studies’ non-sectarian, multi-disciplinary curriculum appealed to Ewing’s nature to examine each topic from multiple angles. While learning about the traditions of Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, and Native American beliefs, she was encouraged to reevaluate her own most deeply held values, think critically about each tradition, and keep an open mind – all skills necessary for a successful attorney.
