Study of Religions
This programme is based on the recognition that religion plays a crucial role in human affairs, and seeks to foster an understanding of this rich subject area; the aim is not to focus on any one tradition, but to enable engagement with different traditions in a manner that is free, fair, accurate and open to correction; this programme has a distinctive focus on contemporary religions; its range of modules, exploring different aspects of religion today, has been designed by staff members with a background in sociology, anthropology, and religious studies; the modules enable students to explore not just the theoretical, but also the practical, lived aspects of religious faith and practice in different contexts.
Normally a good Honours degree.
