Course content

This course will take you on a journey from the religious worlds of the great Western traditions to the mystical world of the ancient East. It will cover the burning contemporary issues that surround Religious Studies today and delve into life’s great questions.

This course is for those who are fascinated by the world of theology and religion. It is for committed believers, questioning agnostics and ardent atheists. In short it is for anyone who wants to explore the nature of existences in the company of experts and likeminded people.

Our new MA programme will allow you to explore the great questions and ideas that have gripped the human race from the time they began to decorate the walls of their caves until the time they launched themselves beyond our stratosphere and into outer space. Our MA is ideal for any RE or Philosophy teacher who wants to further their expertise in their chosen subject. The knowledge and skills it promotes would also be ideal for anyone involved in a profession that requires them to deal with religious, philosophical or ethical issues.
