Religion in the Contemporary World

This programme provides an interdisciplinary, broad social-science perspective on the study of religion, in contrast to courses which take a religious studies or theology-based perspective. It covers topics of key importance, such as secularisation, religion and public policy, religion in the developing world, religion in the West and its historical development, and the understanding of Western models of religion and secularisation through comparison with the rest of the world.

Entry requirements

A 2.1 Honours degree, or overseas equivalent, in any discipline, with genuine interest in anthropology and development, and in possible areas of overlap between the 2. English language requirement for non-native speakers (TOEFL/IELTS).

Sponsorship information

LSE graduate support scheme; other scholarships and awards are available.
