Sikh Studies

This is a research degree that includes taught components and a 20,000-word thesis. The programme's taught element will seek to provide you with an understanding of the Sikh religion in a theological, anthropological and 'case-by-case' context with particular reference to the contemporary scene. The focus of this programme is issue-based rather than, say, linguistic; thus, texts studied will be in English and there are no requirements barring entry with regard to languages (eg, Punjabi). It aims to develop your critical reasoning skills to enable you to objectively analyse Sikh writings as well as writings about Sikhism by both Sikh and non-Sikh scholars, and provides an excellent foundation for subsequent doctoral research.
