Course content

This programme is the result of an innovative, interdisciplinary collaboration between the Postgraduate Quaker Study Centre at Woodbrooke, Birmingham and the Department of Politics, Philosophy, and Religion (PPR).

The MA is designed to introduce you to the theories, issues and processes connected with the history, theology and sociology of Quakerism in a global context. It offers training in research methods and includes a module on the theories of international relations to help you better understand the modern global context.

The programme is especially relevant if you are interested in Quaker theology and history, the adaptation of religious groups to new social and geographical settings, globalisation and religion, and secularisation and Quakerism in a changing political environment.
