Course summary

Our BA Religious Studies degree enables students to become familiar with the specifics of religious traditions and to make comparisons between the beliefs and practices of different religions, particularly in the context of a world coming to terms with its cultural and religious diversity. This programme is intended to stimulate curiosity about, and fascination for, the variety of religious cultures across the globe, and to open up a greater awareness of plurality within religious traditions and within societies at large. This gives students a real insight into the human condition and the multiplicity of religious beliefs and practices in the world.
