Theology and Religious Studies | V600
Full time: 3 years
Theology and Religious Studies asks basic questions about human existence and explores questions of meaning, truth and practice in relation to world religions. It involves the study of scriptures; particular periods of human civilisation; the writings of great thinkers like Aquinas, Luther, Marx, Durkheim and Freud; and reflects on the latest scientific theories.
Although strong in Christian theology (biblical studies and church history), you can either concentrate on Christianity or incorporate a range of religious traditions. It caters for numerous interests – biblical, historical, philosophical and comparative, as well as a mixture of any or all of these. You don\'t have to be religious to study this degree: our students belong to all religious traditions and none. Click here for more information.
