Course summary

Drawing on the Judeo-Christian traditions, students of theology at UWTSD examine everything from the nature of God and the meaning of life to principles of social justice and the possibility of reconciliation. Your concentration in Heritage studies will compliment this emphasis by allowing you to explore practices for the curation and conservation of human cultures. Five Reasons to Study Theology and Heritage: • Wide range of modules on relevant topics such as religious authority, sustainable development, and conservation. • Modules based on lecturers' distinctive research expertise in the Abrahamic faiths and conservation. • Innovative immersive teaching in small groups and one-to-one tutorials. • Space for independent thinking and opportunities to pursue your own interests. • Chance to combine your studies with modules from other humanities subjects.
