Postgraduate study of Science and Religion invites you to bring together the two great truth-seeking disciplines and understand the ways in which they both challenge and inform each other. This interdisciplinary venture is more than the sum of its parts. You will make use of the methods of historical study, philosophy, theology, and literary studies to assess state-of-the-art scientific research alongside well-established areas of debate. Research supervision is offered by academic staff with interests in:
- physics, cosmology and faith
- reduction and emergence
- consciousness and the soul
- evolutionary biology, human uniqueness, and the 'image of God'
- the laws of nature and the idea of 'ultimate reality'
- science and the doctrine of creation
- miracles and science
- the Bible and science
- science and religion in literature and the arts
- ecology, ethics and theology
