Content

If you are interested in studying society and theology, then the BA (Hons) Sociology and Theology degree will give you a solid grounding in both disciplines, as well as the opportunity to combine two subjects which complement your interests or career goals.

The course offers you the opportunity to study a wide range of themes and topics, across a broad sweep of modules, emphasising the value of empirical and theoretical approaches. This is achieved by studying the development, structure, and functioning of human society, as well as the impact of the main disciplines of Christian theology.

In the first and second years, you will follow a traditional broad approach to the study of sociology and theology. In years three and four, you will examine, in-depth, particular areas of sociology and theology, allowing you to study specific topics and themes which reflect staff research specialisms. Each year, you will build on your analytical and research abilities.

The degree also offers the opportunity to study other Humanities subjects such as criminology, history, literature, archaeology, and politics.
