Faith is inseparable from the art, music, literature and moral thinking of all societies. This unique course explores how religious and ethical traditions shape creative expression. You'll look at both historical developments and contemporary issues such as:
- how does the media shape public understanding of religion?
- how does the Bible influence art, music and film?
- how have authors of fantasy and science fiction explored religious and ethical ideas?
Your first two years are a combination of core and optional modules. You'll get a solid foundation in essential thinking around culture and ethics in relation to religion. You'll also be able to choose topics that grab your interest or expand your existing knowledge. If you want to can take the opportunity to learn Biblical Greek and/or Hebrew. The third year has a core dissertation that allows you to write an in-depth piece on a subject of your choosing, supported by a member of staff. The rest of your year is built from optional modules based on the latest research interests of our academics. Placement and volunteering opportunities are available in the School as well as via the Nottingham Advantage Award. You can also spend time overseas through the Study Abroad programme.
