University of Aberdeen
Religion and Society
Applicants for admission will normally be expected to hold a relevant Honours degree of at least 2.1 standard from a recognised university or body. In exceptional circumstances applicants without this qualification may be admitted subject to having an alternative qualification, or an approved level of work experience, appropriate to the field of study. Applicants who have been educated in the medium of English are still required to meet the English language requirements (certain countries may be exempted from this requirement). This programme requires that applicants meet the 'Postgraduate Standard' level of English proficiency. Applicants who are in doubt about their proficiency in English should contact the British Council office or its equivalent in their country. For applicants whose 1st language is not English, it is important that their proficiency in English is good in order for them to study successfully at the University.
1st half-session: advanced social theory (30 credits); qualitative sociology (30 credits). 2nd half-session: religious belief and practice in the modern world (30 credits); elective option (30 credits). Summer session: dissertation (60 credits).
Examination is exclusively by means of course work and continuous assessment. Students will be permitted 1 resubmission of failed work, but no resubmission of the dissertation. For the award of the MSc in both full and part time modes, there is a requirement also to complete a 15,000-word dissertation under supervision from the course team.
