Question:
How many of the top 10 Universities offer graduate degrees for those seeking a career in ministry?

There seems to be a stereotype here on YA that religious=stupid. Here is the list of the top 10 universities in the country according to US News and World Reports (duplicate numbers indicate a tie) :

1. Princeton * 2. Harvard * 3. Yale * 4. California Institute of Technology 4. Stanford 4. M.I.T. 7. Duke * 8. Dartmouth College 9. Columbia University * 9. University of Chicago *

Schools marked with an * offer graduate level degrees (according to the Association of Theological Schools) to students who intend to pursue a career in some form of full time ministry, whether that is teaching, church work, or work in a non-profit. So, the top 3 universities, and 7 of the top 10, offer advanced degrees to religious people. (I am a student at Wake Forest University's Divinity School.)

How does this affect your opinion of the intelligence of religious people?

If you still hold the opinion that religious=stupid, how do you justify that opinion?


Answer:
I never thought religious = stupid. I have a friend whose husband is the head of the religous studies dept at a local college. He got his Doctorate in Theology at Harvard. He's been all over the world studying religion, but mostly focuses on Asian religion, Buddhist & Hindu. One of his most popular classes is a comparative religion class that many students take thinking they are going to hate all other religions & end up finding a lot of similarites in the faiths.
