Our BA Religion and Theology will enable you to understand and explain the ways in which religion significantly shapes the world. Your first year provides a solid foundation in religion’s complex interaction with the modern world. Subsequent years allow you more flexibility to shape your degree to suit your interests. In years one and two you will take units covering issues and approaches to the study of world religions. You will be offered optional units on various aspects of Buddhism, Christian history and theology, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and Chinese and Japanese religions. You can also choose to study one of the following languages: Chinese, Greek, Hebrew, Japanese, Latin or Sanskrit. You have the opportunity to spend half of your second year studying abroad at a partner university.

You will also produce a dissertation and have the option of doing fieldwork. Our welcoming classroom environment enables you to interact closely with lecturers. Tutors employ a variety of teaching styles, ranging from small-group sessions to lecture units.
