Course summary

Course Overview

This is a broad MA programme that aims to explore the academic discipline of Religious Studies. We seek to introduce you to key theoretical and methodological issues in the study of religion from a range of disciplinary perspectives.

Our programme typically explores key topics in religion such as the social and cultural transformations of contemporary religion and spirituality; religion and conflict; religion and popular culture; modern religious thought and history; new religious movements; and religion and gender. In addition, the programme provides you with an opportunity to explore the history, texts and contemporary contexts of specific religious traditions.

We hope that you will develop advanced research skills through the programme, skills that can be relevant to a range of professions. Equally, the programme can also provide a foundation for those looking to pursue academic careers.
