This highly flexible degree allows you to choose subjects from the full range of traditions and topics taught in Religions and Theology.
Our introductory core course examines the lives and works of key religious thinkers from a variety of geographical and historical contexts. This course will also introduce you to the various theories and methods currently used in the subject area (eg literary, historical, theological, anthropological and gender-theory approaches).
With your course options, you can concentrate on one specific subject area, or choose from a range of different subject areas. You can study the language of a sacred text, learn about Islamic, Jewish, Hindu or Buddhist traditions, pursue an interest in the Bible or Christian thought, or discover the different approaches to religion offered by theology, sociology, anthropology and philosophy.
Thanks to such a remarkable degree of flexibility and choice, you are firmly in charge of your studies.
You will study in a recognised international centre of excellence, which holds a perfect score for the assessment of its teaching quality.
In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, 75% of our research activity was graded either 4* (`world leading') or 3* (`internationally excellent'). For our research environment 100% of our activities were graded at 4*/3*. The impact of our research was also judged to be strong with 100% of our activity in this category graded either 4* (`outstanding') or 3* (`very considerable') in `reach and significance'. This means that the social significance of our work is internationally excellent and our research activity is carried on in an internationally excellent environment. Nearly two-thirds of our graded research work was also ranked as internationally excellent.
