History and Religion at York St John University - UCAS

Course summary

Together Religion and History help us understand the modern world by exploring the beliefs people hold, and how our past led us to our current situations. Learn about the historical events and philosophical movements that have shaped our modern world. This course gives you the freedom to choose the modules that interest you most, and the debates and issues raised in each subject will help to inform one another. In your Religion modules you will explore theological questions not as abstract concepts but as ways we can try to deal with problems in everyday life. We will discuss relevant and sometimes controversial issues such as: Wealth and poverty Relationships between races and genders The influence of the media The role of ethics in life and death decisions Environmental issues The morality of war. In your History modules you will have the chance to study many different periods, places and peoples, from antiquity to the 21st century. Some of the areas you may study include: American history Empires Environmental history Revolutions Slavery The Cold War. York has a long and fascinating history, and we make use of the resources on our doorstep. You will benefit from our extensive partnerships with heritage sites, archives and businesses across the city, including York Museums Trust, York Explore and Yorkshire Film Archive. In both your History and your Religion modules we will support your learning through field trips and visits in York and beyond. Our work related learning module will help you to gain work experience and transferable skills to prepare you for your career.
