Course summary

The Bible and Theology Programmes offers students the opportunity to explore the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament and to learn about the history and development of Christian thought. Modules examine different ways of imagining the world within the Judaeo-Christian tradition and focus on its beliefs, teachings and practices. In doing so, the programme also looks to situate Judaeo-Christian traditions within contemporary social, political, theological and spiritual debates.
