Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, the programme seeks to probe relationships between religion, spirituality, society, identity, ethics and popular culture. Through a re-discovering of texts and traditions, students will explore central concepts and teachings as well as analyse the phenomenon of religion from a wide range of disciplinary perspectives.
The areas of studies are divided mainly into: Holy Scriptures, Ministry, Comparative Theology (Ecumenism, Inter-religious Dialogue and Dialogue with society), Historical Theology, Systematic Theology and Ethics. Students choosing this course will become trained in advanced research skills and will network with scholars dedicated to the study of religions or religious thought.
This course is addressed to any person who is:
- pursuing jobs in academia, development work, community-based roles, aspects of welfare, social care and counselling, or
- interested in local and central government policy-making and administrative departments.
