Course summary

Overview

This course will give you a sophisticated understanding of theories and methods at the forefront of Theology and Religious Studies. You’ll study diverse religious traditions in the UK and beyond, as well as their impact on the world around us.

You'll specialise in theology or religious studies, depending on the modules you choose, exploring areas such as human rights, wealth and wealth creation, terrorism, social justice, philosophy of religion, multiculturalism, and the links between religion and global development or gender. You’ll also gain an understanding of research methods in the humanities and social sciences.

With the support of leading researchers, including those working in our Centre for Philosophy of Religion and Centre for Religion and Public Life, you’ll develop a wide range of skills while exploring a subject that is vital for understanding the world we live in.

You’ll find plenty of resources at Leeds to inspire and inform your studies. The Special Collections housed in our Brotherton Library include extensive collections of archive and early printed material, including hundreds of theological works from the 17th century onwards. We also hold the library of Ripon Cathedral and the archives of the Dean and Chapter, spanning from the late Middle Ages to the 20th century, as well as extensive archives relating to Quaker history. In addition we have a large number of early printed books and manuscripts connected with Jewish theology and history. All the major world religions are also fully represented in our excellent library resources.

You can also study this course as a Masters (MA) or postgraduate diploma (PGDip) qualification, where you take more modules overall.
