Content

Year 1: In first year you might choose to focus upon the Bible and Christianity or gain a greater understanding of a wide range of religious traditions. At the same time you will be introduced to some key concerns shared by those who work in theology and religious studies: How do we read sacred texts? How do we think and speak about God? What defines religion and culture? What impact does religion make upon our social and political life?

You will also study two other subjects in year 1 according to your interests: see Degrees in Arts, Science and Social Sciences.

Year 2: In second year you will develop your understanding further by progressing in your studies of the Christian tradition or other world faiths. More advanced courses will enable you to explore what religious believers consider to be the most significant aspects of their faith and how these impact upon their daily lives. You are also required to take a study skill course prior to entry to year three.

You will also study one or two other subjects in year 2 according to your interests: see Degrees in Arts, Science and Social Sciences.

Years 3 and 4: If you successfully complete the courses in first and second year, you may progress to either Single or Joint Honours (years three and four). As a Single Honours student you will take six courses – usually four in your Junior Honours year and two in your Senior Honours year. If you wish to do Joint Honours you will take some courses from each of the two subjects you are studying.
