Course content

Our MA in Religion (Canterbury and Paris) is a new programme providing core training in metholodogies of the study of religion while encouraging wider interdisciplinary work.

Following an autumn term at our Canterbury campus, you spend a Spring term studying in Paris, where you gain a specific insight into the influence of religion in a European context. Your knowledge is enhanced and shaped through the independence that is gained by living abroad for a period of time.

The programme is primarily for students who wish to pursue further postgraduate research or research in other contexts. It offers an overview of key theoretical debates in the study of religion, as well as methodological issues and approaches for conducting fieldwork.

Course Structure

You complete two core modules (one in the Autumn; one in the Spring), both attracting 30 credits. You can also select two 30-credit option modules that will help you to further develop your specific interests. Assessment is by coursework on the taught modules and the dissertation on the MA programme.


The interdisciplinary nature of the programme means that you can specialise while also being well-prepared for the modern University job market, where versatility and interdisciplinary is increasingly the norm. The University’s aim of ensuring our students acquire discipline-specific and transferable skills through the curriculum is at the heart of this new MA programme. Additionally, the experience of living overseas brings a confidence and independence that many employers find desirable. Although teaching is in English, you also enhance your linguistic skills, enhancing your skill set for the competitive job market.
