The Inter-religious Relations MRes degree is a research programme with some provision for taught modules. It studies religions in their historical and contemporary development, giving special attention to geographical spread, theological complexity and cultural influence. Recognising that the great religions have developed in relation to one another, it explores the affinities between them, their mutual indebtedness, their differences, the clashes their encounters have produced, and contemporary issues around religion, politics and peacebuilding.
The programme comprises four components; a compulsory Research Methodology module, two optional modules, and a 20,000-word thesis on a topic of your choice.
