Course content

With more than 2.2 billion followers, and as one of the oldest religions, Christianity plays an important role in influencing a wide range of social, political and cultural issues.

This programme interprets some of the key themes and trends in Christianity in the ‘majority’ or non-western world, and is designed to provide expert insight, knowledge and skills to understand the wide range of Christian belief, culture and practice throughout the world, particularly in Africa, Latin America and Asia.

It is taught in a strongly interdisciplinary way, and employs historical, sociological, anthropological and theological perspectives. You will enjoy a unique framework to study, research and understand the complexity of Christian communities in the world and their wider significance for culture and society.
