MA Death, Religion and Culture at Winchester explores the way in which death is the only inevitability of life. This universal reality is understood differently by various cultures and religious traditions, and those understandings are played out in rituals of death, dying and bereavement. The programme attracts a diverse range of students including funeral directors, clergy from a variety of traditions, teachers, nurses and those preparing for a research degree, as well as a range of people who are simply fascinated by the subject. Study provides a view of historical and current approaches to death and dying, disposal and bereavement rituals, enabling a meeting of professional groups and students with particular interests in this area of speciality. This programme is only offered by distance learning. You may visit the University, and use our facilities and resources on site, however this would be optional and additional to any required study.
