Quaker Studies

The course is designed to introduce students to the theories, issues and processes connected with the history, theology and sociology of Quakerism in a global context. The programme is especially relevant if students are interested in Quaker theology and history, the adaptation of religious groups to new social and geographical settings, globalisation and religion, and secularisation. On successful completion, students will have the option of transferring to the MA in Quakerism in the Modern World. Alternatively, the Postgraduate Certificate in Quaker Studies is an excellent way to gain a foundation in the academic study of the Quaker past and present.
