I'm curious as what kind of jobs, or maybe a better question would be how Many, a CHS master's would be relevent. or a M. Div outside of academia or outside of a nominially Christian oriented group (and I'd include UU in that last part for this discussion).

For myself, I am interested in youth education and various other things. I'm not really seeing this necessarily as a career choice, just something to pursue for the joy of studying it. I'll be paying off my undergrad degree for decades, and I did the same thing there. It's not for everyone, and it's not the most "responsible" thing I could do, but it has been the most enriching and satisfying experience of my life and has opened up options I would never even have thought about otherwise. I learn best in a structured environment, and don't yet have the basics I need to explore what I'm interested in on my own. As an undergrad, I was a French major for the sole purpose of cultural studies and immersing myself in something that spoke to me. I studied abroad, and hope to eventually move back to France to live. I would approach divinity school or seminary studies with the same mindset--not looking to land a job, per se, but enriching my life and exploring my interests via academic study.

Just my take on it.
