Theology, Religion & Philosophy of Religion

Theology, Religion, and Philosophy of Religion gives you a deep and nuanced understanding of the significance of religion and its cultural contexts

Theology, Religion, and Philosophy of Religion (TRPR) is exciting, challenging, intellectually rigorous and extremely interdisciplinary. The course gives you considerable freedom: it is possible to select papers on a broad range of topics, encompassing the history, practice and thought of the major world religions of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Judaism. You can also combine your interest in religion with areas such as history, sociology, anthropology, philosophy, literature, politics, and science. More details about the course can be found on the University website
