Undergraduate study in Theology and Religion


Theology is a broad subject that explores questions about the meaning of life, as well as the particular texts, beliefs and traditions of different religious groups.

Studying religion in this way is an excellent way of helping you to think about your own values and beliefs, become more aware of different view-points, and learn more about the different ways in which religion and spirituality is important in today’s society.

Our programmes in Theology offer a flexible structure for exploring different aspects of religious life, belief and tradition. You can explore a range of different religious faiths (particular Christianity, Judaism and Islam), as well as changing forms of religion and spirituality in contemporary society.
