Religious Studies

You can study to PhD level in Religious Studies and you can take this subject in conjunction with other department disciplines such as Divinity, History, Philosophy, Anthropology and Sociology. Religious Studies is distinct from Divinity. Religious Studies concentrates on religions other than Christianity. It considers both Western and Eastern religions as well as ancient and modern religions. Research focuses on explaining the origin and function of religion and not on evaluating the truth of the beliefs of religions. It considers practices as much as beliefs.
