About

The MA Religions and Theology programme from The University of Manchester is aimed at both specialists who want to deepen their knowledge and skills, and graduates of other disciplines who want to switch to postgraduate-level study of this subject.

Overview

Our approach allows you to ask questions you might not otherwise ask, and to cross boundaries you might not cross in other settings where religion and theology are discussed.This Religions and Theology course from The University of Manchester is designed to enable you to either take units covering a broad range of religious, theological and philosophical traditions, or concentrate your study in an area that interests you.

Some of the routes you can take through this degree incorporate Biblical Studies, Jewish Studies, Theology, Philosophy and Ethics, South Asian Studies, and Politics and Gender.

Career opportunities

We aim to give our students research skills, whether for academic work or for another career, as many professions today require investigative skills. Some in the media spend time researching angles of events that relate to religions, while others in the health service investigate the experiences of various cultural groups in accessing services.

Many in museums, libraries and other archives require the textual and historical research skills that our courses teach. Postgraduate study in Religions and Theology gives you a high level qualification for a wide range of investigative tasks.
