A new study says that certain college majors could either strengthen or weaken a student's faith.
The University of Michigan analyzed data on students for six years after they started college.
The study found that those who majored in education became more religious, while those who majored in the humanities and social sciences became less religious.
"Because we consider both the Humanities and many of the Social Sciences particularly strongly imbued with Postmodernism, we take this as evidence for a negative effect of Postmodernism on religiosity," the report stated, which was released July.
There was mixed or minimal impact on faith for business, math or science majors.
