Religion spans history, influences cultures and plays a major role in shaping today’s political landscape. It’s a subject that remains in the news constantly – in contexts ranging from discussions about marriage and gender identity to concerns about immigration and terrorist attacks. As many of these issues provoke heated reactions, often with great consequence, it has never been more important to explore the many facets of religion, and understand the term’s meaning in a range of cultural contexts. Studying Religion at the University of Stirling gives you a chance to do all this. You’ll explore how the meaning of “Religion” differs around the world, and take a positively interdisciplinary approach to considering how the term might be re-interpreted. Our teaching team is dedicated to carrying out cutting-edge research into what they call critical religion, and they feed their findings not only into new books and papers, but also back into your coursework. Through your studies, you’ll develop a critically discerning mind, and by extension, an invaluable understanding of other people’s point-of-view and approach to the world, by which you can help to change thinking, policy and practice both locally and globally. We are committed to equipping you with transferrable skills that will make you a valuable asset to a range of employers. Join us and benefit from a fresh, innovative approach to studying one of the world’s most foundational topics, and one that continues to integrate multiple disciplines across and the Humanities and beyond. Please note: Religion at Stirling is studied as part of a combined degree with a range of other subjects.
