100% of UWTSD’s Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies students agreed that staff are good at explaining things – NSS 2018. Theology is one of the broadest subjects you can study at university because theology is a discipline that is supposed to be about everything. Drawing on the Judeo-Christian traditions, students of theology at UWTSD examine everything from the nature of God and the meaning of life to principles of social justice and the possibility of reconciliation. And with a concentration in Classical Civilisation, you can explore the culture, literature and politics of the world that shaped these traditions. Five Reasons to Study Theology and Classical Civilisation: • Wide range of modules on relevant topics such as mythology, the nature of God, and classical literature. • Modules based on lecturers' distinctive research expertise in the Abrahamic faiths and ancient Greek and Roman History. • Innovative immersive teaching in small groups and one-to-one tutorials. • Space for independent thinking and opportunities to pursue your own interests. • Chance to combine your studies with modules from other humanities subjects.
In the study of Theology, students will be able to examine the major questions of life from the perspective of the Judeo-Christian traditions. This programme enables students to explore the sacred writings of Judaism and Christianity, as well as the teachings, practices and social impact of Christianity, from historical and contemporary perspectives. Students will benefit from staff specialism in biblical studies, church history, systematic theology, and religion in the modern world. Joining our Classical Civilisation programme allows you to study a wide range of modules covering not only fascinating historical figures, well-known military leaders, and historical "boogy-men" like the Emperor Nero. You will read the great literary works of these worlds – the Homeric epics, the tragedies, Cicero – and learn about the basic aspects of everyday life, such as the role of women, religion, warfare and the economy.
