Course summary

THEOLOGY & RELIGIOUS STUDIES (BD): If you are hoping to work in pastoral ministry, a caring profession or a voluntary organisation, the BD could be suitable for you. It combines academic study with practical application and placements. You will explore worship, liturgy, ethics and reflect on pastoral practice. You may choose to study a Biblical language: Hebrew or Greek. Theology & Religious Studies encompasses the study of religion, religions, the Bible and theology – not as worlds apart, but as they relate to politics, history, literature, philosophy, art and culture as well as to personal belief and practice. We are passionate about exploring the way that religion shapes political and cultural life. You will explore the role of religion in the rich textual, cultural, artistic and philosophical heritage of humankind, and the influence of religion in politics, conflict and social attitudes. The programme can be structured to introduce you to a variety of religions or to focus on the Christian tradition.
