Religion

Whatever your background or beliefs, this course is designed for anyone interested in exploring important questions we have about creation, life and faith. Study the subject on its own, or as part of a teaching qualification.

Joining us on field trips and in guest lectures, you’ll explore practices as they are lived in the 21st century and understand how religion interfaces with society and culture. When you graduate, you’ll be able to show employers your understanding of diversity and difference, as well as empathy and sensitivity towards different religions.

Our research-active lecturers specialise in areas such as use of the Bible in society, LGBTQ+ experiences of religion, and gender and religion.

Studying religion opens up a range of careers, from the civil service to journalism to getting involved with charities.

Focus on the major religions: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism. Many unis don’t cover such an extensive range.
