Course summary

This degree enables you to study the history, philosophy, psychology and sociology of education alongside an exploration of a range of world religions, their origins, their practices and their philosophies. The programme will equip you with a broad and deep knowledge of both academic studies in education and religion. You will learn how to draw upon a wide range of intellectual resources, theoretical and ethical perspectives, and academic subjects to illuminate your understanding of education and the contexts within which it takes place. Simultaneously, your curiosity will be stimulated about the variety of religious cultures across the globe, both past and present, engaging you in the in-depth study of sacred, significant, popular and vernacular texts, as well as the history, practices and developed theology of one or more particular religious traditions.
