Profound. Inspiring. Divisive. Religion can be all of these things. Making sense of religion and its impact is essential to understanding other cultures - and your own. At Nottingham, you'll explore:
- how religious ideas, practices, and identities develop over time
- the insights theology and ethics bring to the biggest questions we face today
- how religious beliefs influence science, philosophy, art, and literature.
- explore centuries of philosophical arguments about the nature of God
- study the relationship between Judaism, Christianity and Islam
- learn ancient Greek and Hebrew and read biblical texts in their original languages
Your first year gives you a thorough overview of the fundamentals of theology across Christianity, Judaism and Islam through a series of core modules. You'll also be able to choose optional modules that build on existing knowledge or allow you to explore something new. You can start learning ancient biblical Greek or study something outside of Theology - maintain an existing interest or get a different perspective on a theological issue. Your second and third years are mostly optional modules. You'll be able to take your learning in the way that suits your interests as you develop. As well as biblical Greek you can also start learning biblical Hebrew - allowing you to read texts in their original form. There is a compulsory dissertation in the final year. This is an extended piece of work that gives you the time to concentrate on a subject that fascinates you. Work placement and volunteering opportunities are available in the School of Humanities, as well as via the Nottingham Advantage Award. You can also spend time overseas through the Study Abroad programme.
