Course summary

Overview:

Attracting students from around the world, our MA in Religion offers students an outstanding range of teaching from internationally leading scholars. Our degree gives you the option of taking one of four different pathways of study or to tailor your own degree based on your interests.

Students can tap into our rich tradition of excellence in textual, theological and philosophical study while gaining perspective on ways religion shapes and is shaped by the contemporary world.

Leads to careers in teaching, journalism, civil service, community, church or religious organisations.

Description

The MA in Religion is designed to be both rigorous and flexible. Under the umbrella of a single MA, you will have the choice of four pathways that can be tailored to your interests.

If you wish to gain a deeper understanding of religion in the contemporary world from political, sociological and anthropological perspectives, follow the Religion in Contemporary Society pathway.

For a comprehensive understanding of Christian thought and practice as it has been reasoned and debated over the centuries, take the Systematic Theology pathway.

The Biblical Studies pathway introduces students to the world, text and context of the Bible in antiquity and in the modern world, reading it as literature and as a theological text.

The Jewish Studies pathway opens up the richness of Jewish texts and experience from antiquity to modern times, with particular attention to current issues in multi-religious societies.

The final option available to you is to not follow a pathway and to instead forge your own path, choosing the MA-level teaching you desire from across our diverse and interdisciplinary Department of Theology and Religious Studies and beyond.

Applicants apply to the MA Religion programme, and then are allocated to a pathway depending on their module choices in the course of their studies.

Career prospects

Our graduates use the skills and knowledge that they develop with us to pursue careers in teaching, journalism, media, civil service, policy consultancy, museum work, community organisations and the church or other religious institutions. Others have continued their studies to further research.
