This course will enable you to reflect critically on theology, ethics, philosophy and the place of religion and faith within contemporary culture. The modules, which reflect the research interests of our staff, enable you to systematically explore key themes and current debates in selected areas of focus. 

The Theology, Religion and Philosophy programme offered by The University of Winchester also enables you to develop advanced research skills. This will be most clearly developed through the Research Methods module, which will prepare you, under the direction of an expert supervisor, for the completion of your 15,000-word dissertation on an agreed topic.


You can work in any field in which researching, analysing and writing research-based reports are core skills. If you are, or wish to be, a teacher, academic or member of the clergy, you will find the degree an invaluable stepping stone to career advancement.
