MA

This is a broad MA programme that aims to explore the academic discipline of Religious Studies. We seek to introduce you to key theoretical and methodological issues in the study of religion from a range of disciplinary perspectives.

Our programme typically explores key topics in religion such as, the social and cultural transformations of contemporary religion and spirituality; religion and conflict; religion and popular culture; modern religious thought and history; new religious movements; and religion and gender. In addition, the programme provides you with an opportunity to explore the history, texts and contemporary contexts of specific religious traditions.

We hope that you will develop advanced research skills through the programme, skills that can be relevant to a range of professions. Equally, the programme can also provide a foundation for those looking to pursue academic careers.

PG Cert

This programme aims to provide you with a secure knowledge of the major theories, concepts and issues relating to Religion in a variety of intellectual traditions and historical and contemporary contexts. Our intention is that you will gain an understanding of a range of debates and discussions raised by past and present religious belief and practice. In addition, throughout this programme we enable you to gain the skills required to evaluate, analyse and interpret both academic and practitioner approaches to Religion.

In addition to the core module of Studying Religion you will choose two optional modules from the range available in the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion.

Distance Learning PG Cert

The programme, delivered entirely online, aims to provide you with a secure knowledge of the major theories, concepts, issues and practices relating to Religious Studies. Our intention is that you will gain a systematic understanding of a number of ways in which the scholarship of religion frames and analyses religious belief and practice in the modern world. In addition, throughout this programme we enable you to develop the skills required to evaluate, analyse and interpret the contexts of contemporary religious belief and practice.

The programme comprises three modules, two compulsory and one taken from the suite of religion modules that we offer by distance learning.
