Course summary

This course gives you an in-depth and critical understanding, from a global perspective, of the role of religion in society and politics across local and international communities. Combining topics across religious studies, politics, international relations and sociology, you’ll gain an insight into the complexity of religion, politics and society. You’ll examine topics such as migration, race and ethnicity, development, the environment, conflict and violence, and sexuality and gender. Core modules will introduce you to key concepts and approaches in religious studies, politics and sociology. You’ll also choose from a wide range of optional modules reflecting topics that appeal to you. It’s a fantastic opportunity to explore some of the most important issues affecting public life today, with an opportunity to specialise in one of the three disciplines through your choice of modules and your choice of the final year research project.
