Course summary

Education has the power to inspire and teachers are in a unique position to shape and change the lives of young people, their families and communities. Great teachers are visionaries, lifelong learners, leaders, communicators, collaborators, partners, innovators, creative thinkers, problem solvers, adaptors and role models. Our post-primary programmes help prepare you for that challenge and equip you with the skills, knowledge and experience to create a positive learning environment, inspiring young people to maximise their potential and believe in themselves.

The BEd (Hons) Post-primary Religious Studies course is a four-year programme designed to support your development as an educational professional and reflective practitioner. Throughout the course, emphasis is placed on inclusion, respect for diversity and the development of critical openness towards a range of religious beliefs and practices. You will develop a deepening personal awareness and understanding of religion and religious issues, equipping you with the tools to become effective educators of Religious Education. Discover how to teach world religions and consider the contemporary debates relating to Religious Education on the Post-primary curriculum. You will be welcome if you are from any religious background or of no religion.

In addition to your Religious Studies main subject, you will also study a subsidiaryl subject from:

  • Computing
  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Physical Education


Although most BEd graduates are interested in pursuing careers in teaching in schools and education settings, many use their transferable skills to develop careers in a wide range of other sectors including:

  • Youth Services
  • Charitable and Third Sector
  • Social Work and Community Development
  • Educational Centres
  • General Management
  • Local Government
  • Varied graduate programmes
