Course summary

This course emphasises the importance of understanding the current religious climate and the interrelation of secular and religious communities. We consider the representation of religion in the media and popular culture, its activity in the public sphere and its significance for identity and wellbeing.

Course overview

This is a varied and exciting programme taught by experienced, research-active academics. You will develop your research and critical thinking skills, whether you are motivated by an ambition to pursue employment or further academic study in the field, or by professional development and personal interest.

This programme is supported by the Centre for Religion in Society – established in 2008 at York St John University for practitioners and professionals from across the humanities and social sciences to consider the role of religion in our cultural, social and political life. This unique, interdisciplinary resource will enrich your learning experience and enhance your religious literacy, your understanding of varieties of spirituality and your awareness of religion as it intersects with current and critical issues in the public sphere locally and globally.

Our course is enhanced by a wide range of speakers, including journalists, political activists and religious practitioners, invited to speak at Ebor Lecture Series. You will have the opportunity to explore the interrelation of secular and religious communities in relation to social justice and the complex issues of gender and sexuality, spirituality and mental health.

The interdisciplinary nature of the Centre, the Ebor Lecture Series and the staff in the department enable us to offer this exciting, cutting-edge programme; researching, exploring and debating the pressing and fraught theoretical and practical matters that impact on communities today. Students will have PgDip and PgCert exit awards in this course.
