While I agree that religious studies may not be as "vocational" as subjects like business or STEM, would everybody actually be better off if everybody studied something practical? Think about it. Some subjects teach the rules of the trade, but just knowing the rules themselves does not always guarantee success. The world is in a constant state of change, where innovation and creativity work together with structure and predictability. What really matters is whether someone contributes in a way that works well for them. Studying a trade is not a prerequisite to having a successful life and career. While it may give immediate results for people, pleasing the HR department is not always the way people "get in".
