This is one of several specialist routes available in our BA (Honours) Arts and Humanities. The degree starts by developing your understanding of the world we live in through a variety of perspectives, periods and subjects – including art history, classical studies, creative writing, English language, English literature, history, modern languages, music, philosophy, and religious studies itself. You’ll then take two specialist religious studies modules, exploring religions as an important aspect of human culture, society and politics and their role and significance in various debates and controversies. The modules cover many different contemporary and historical contexts. Your learning in this exciting subject will be supported by books, podcasts, videos and interactive materials.
Alongside your study of religious studies, you can choose to study a second specialism from the subjects listed above, entitling you to include both subjects in the name of your degree, or complete your degree with modules chosen from a wide range of options.
There are no formal qualifications required to study this degree. Computer and internet access required.
If you’re new to study or to the OU, we recommend that you start with a course at Level 1.
