Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Theology and Religion

This programme looks at the complex relationship between religious texts and their social, political and cultural contexts. You will gain knowledge and understanding of several religious traditions, study the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament, the development of Christian doctrine in its historical context, and the thought of modern theologians.

Engaging with a wide variety of texts will develop your critical, analytical and comparative skills. You will acquire competence in at least one of six languages and be able to read sacred texts in their original language.

Students pursuing this route with Approved Prior Learning will pursue a range of options in their two years in order to ensure that they have covered all aspects of the curriculum.
