Course summary

Curious about religious culture? Eager to explore education and how it has evolved? Studying this combined education and religion degree, you’ll look at methods of teaching across all ages and the theology of different religious traditions. The history, philosophy, psychology and sociology of education meets the study of world religions and their origins, practices and philosophies. We’ve designed this education and religion degree to give you the chance to study two fascinating areas. Our experts will help you explore a wide range of intellectual resources, as well as theoretical and ethical perspectives. With optional modules in each year of study, you’ll also have the chance to shape your degree and explore the areas that interest you. Discuss and debate technology and its place in the classroom. Examine the emerging discipline of the economics of education. Spend time unravelling different subjects to boost your understanding of the UK education system. When you’re not exploring education, you’ll be looking at religious cultures from across the globe – past and present. Our specialists will talk to you about sacred and significant texts, alongside the history, practices and theology of religious traditions.
