Course summary

Religious studies is an interdisciplinary field of study focusing on religious beliefs and practices and their relationship with the wider world. You will study the concepts and emotions which underpin religious belief and practice, and their role and function in culture and society. **What you will cover**You will look at practices and texts and consider a range of expressions of religion from popular culture to systematic ideas. You'll approach religion at both the individual and collective level and study traditions in different countries.Our programme covers historical and contemporary material. It takes as much interest in the groups and people who practice religion as their gods, deities, ancestors and spirits. Religion has a long history and remains a powerful force in the contemporary world. Religious studies provides the tools and skills to help you get to grips with this vital field of study.
