Overview

The History, Civilisations and Beliefs course explores the interactions between cultures and religions in both historical and contemporary contexts, and come to a new understanding of the world.

Students gain a critical, yet empathetic, appreciation of views of the world which differ from our own in time and space. They also see how our own culture today is influenced by civilisations and beliefs around us and before us. Whether their interests are in history, religion or current society and culture, students find their understanding, appreciation and awareness deepened by the integrated approach brought together in this degree course.

Programme structure

In Year 1, students take a range of modules that introduce the methodologies of History, Archaeology and Theology and Religious Studies along with the background to enable further study in Years 2 and 3.

The course draws upon a focused set of modules across three disciplines to introduce students to the multidisciplinary crossover of issues about culture, religion and society, and to help students further understand the way these issues are studied. It picks up both contemporary concerns about the nature and role of religion in society and also the growing interest in using diverse approaches to gain greater insights into the subject matter.
