Course content

The MA in Religion provides advanced study of the religious traditions of both the West and Asia. The programme offers two pathways:

  • Buddhist Studies
  • Theology and Religious Studies

These reflect the expertise in the Department of Religion and Theology and allow you to study various religious traditions with scholars who are world-renowned experts in those fields.

The taught element of the programme requires you to do some study of both Asian and western religious traditions (irrespective of the pathway you choose) but also allows you to focus more rigorously on the study of either Buddhism or religion and theology more broadly. In either pathway, the aim is to engage students in in-depth study, led by staff who teach careful, rigorous, scholarly research methods at a high level.
