The Religion, Culture and Society programme from University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) aims to promote inclusivity, encourage reflection on interfaith dialogue and highlight the important contribution religion and belief makes to community cohesion and combating religious prejudice and discrimination.

You’ll evaluate how and why the role of religion and culture has changed within society and explore the impact and influence of religion and belief within economic, political and social constructs.

You’ll critically analyse religion and faith within the framework of theistic and atheistic approaches to spirituality, human rights, sexuality, territory and space, and cultural relationships.

Why study with us

This popular area of study responds to a number of high-level directives and guidelines including the Council of Europe, the Religious Education Council of England and Wales and Ofsted.

You’ll be examining classical and contemporary theological and philosophical concepts and theories of faith in relation to lived environments.
