Overview

This course is for those who want to ask deep questions about what it means to be human, to examine answers to such questions, and the way that those answers – religious and otherwise – have shaped global events, cultures and societies.

Our students don’t just study what others have said, or learn names, dates and beliefs. They are historians and scholars of religion, investigating and interpreting events and evidence, practices and ideas for themselves, in order to understand the development of individual, social and cultural identities.

Unique placement, field trip and study abroad opportunities complement learning on the course. Previous destinations have included the USA, Canada, India and Spain, as well as various UK destinations. A variety of guest speakers, as well as local and international partnerships with museums, archives and religious communities will also enrich your learning.

You’ll become an independent practitioner, researcher and critical thinker. Working closely with subject experts as you develop deep knowledge in your field, you’ll gain highly desirable skills in investigative, analytical research and communication.

Hands-on experience with historical documents and artefacts, as well as the close examination of religious texts and ideas, will also help you to build essential skills for work within and beyond university.

The course offers specialist strands in British, European, American and Soviet history, as well as in the major world religions (Islam, Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism), new expressions of spirituality and non-religious movements. This rich curriculum allows you to shape your studies in ways that match your interests.
