Course summary

Religious studies is a vibrant interdisciplinary field of study focusing on religious beliefs and practices and their relationship with the wider world. Religious studies is concerned with the concepts and emotions which underpin religious belief and practice, and their role and function in culture and society. We look at practices as well as texts and consider a range of expressions of religion from popular culture to systematic ideas. We approach religion at both the individual and collective level and study traditions in comparative international context. We study historical as well as contemporary material and are equally interested in the groups and individuals who practice religion as in the gods, deities, ancestors and spirits with whom they interact. 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.
