Inter-Religious Relations

This is a research programme with some provision for taught modules. It studies religions in their historical and contemporary development, giving special attention to diverse contexts, theological complexity and cultural influence. Recognising that the great religions have developed in relation to one another, it explores the affinities between them, their mutual indebtedness, their differences, the clashes their encounters have produced, and contemporary issues around religion, politics and peacebuilding.

Entry requirements

A 2:1 degree in a relevant discipline is required for entry.
