Course summary

Course Overview

The programme, delivered entirely online, aims to provide you with a secure knowledge of the major theories, concepts, issues and practices relating to Religious Studies. Our intention is that you will gain a systematic understanding of a number of ways in which the scholarship of religion frames and analyses religious belief and practice in the modern world. In addition, throughout this programme we enable you to develop the skills required to evaluate, analyse and interpret the contexts of contemporary religious belief and practice.

The programme comprises three modules, two compulsory and one taken from the suite of religion modules that we offer by distance learning.
