Course summary

This degree gives students a grounding in the beliefs and practices of a wide range of faiths.

Students studying BA Religious Studies will develop an understanding of the role of religion in the world and study the origins and development of religious traditions, including Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism.

Course Overview

Our BA Religious Studies degree enables students to become familiar with the specifics of religious traditions and to make comparisons between the beliefs and practices of different religions, particularly in the context of a world coming to terms with its cultural and religious diversity.

This programme is intended to stimulate curiosity about, and fascination for, the variety of religious cultures across the globe, and to open up a greater awareness of plurality within religious traditions and within societies at large. This gives students a real insight into the human condition and the multiplicity of religious beliefs and practices in the world.

Career Opportunities

A BA in Religious Studies is a highly desirable qualification in terms of engaging in a multicultural, multi-faith society.

It is a sought after degree by employers who want staff to engage with a diverse cultural environment. Consequently, many of our students find employment and build careers in social services, counselling, nursing, policing, and fire and rescue services.

A number of students move on to a PGCE in primary or secondary Religious Education.

Other students seek to add to their BA by pursuing postgraduate studies that involve an aspect of religion from the world’s great traditions.

The University of Wales Trinity Saint David is widely recognised for mobilising its students for the world of work. Student Services offer an active programme of employment-related activities; the School of Theology, Religious Studies and Islamic Studies regularly builds bridges for its students to employment-related activities endorsed by the University.
