Course summary

Religious movements, institutions and theological ideas have had a profound influence on historical events and processes. Studying undergraduate History and Theology is an exciting chance to discover how and why our world emerged, alongside the ideas that are shaping religion, faith and spirituality in the 21st century.

The University of Birmingham provides an intellectually challenging environment to nurture your enthusiastic appreciation of the past and spirituality. Our knowledge covers a wide range of historical periods (antiquity, medieval, early modern, modern and contemporary), geographical contexts (Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America) and religious ideologies, which encourages you to question some of the myths, preconceptions and prejudices in the interplay of history and theology.

During your degree course, you will also develop an informed appreciation of the religious and historical contexts surrounding pressing contemporary issues, which will allow you to engage critically with historical and theological debates and identify how they influence each other. We are placed in the Top 10 for History in The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019, and in the Top 10 for Theology in the Complete University Guide 2020.
