The MA Education and Religion in Society (RiS) is designed for practitioners working across a range of educational settings to help you to update both your subject knowledge in the area of religion and your awareness of key issues in education.

This Masters programme will support your personal and professional development as a reflective practitioner so that you can better appreciate both the latest developments in pedagogy and educational theory and improve the breadth and/or depth of your subject knowledge in RiS.
