This programme is designed to enhance students' understanding of the growing and contentious role of religion in the public sphere and will be of interest to recent graduates in Theology and Religious Studies, as well as other humanities and social science disciplines. The course also provides an opportunity for public and private sector professionals, whose work requires expertise and 'literacy' in religious and faith matters, to reflect on best practice.
Research degrees also available. For subject areas please refer to MA by Research, and MPhil information.
