**Theology is an ideal course for students** with wide interests, since it embraces a variety of other subjects, including philosophy, ethics, history, literature, politics, sociology and anthropology. Almost every story covered in the media has an ethical, philosophical or religious dimension to it, so that theology is always relevant to the issues of today’s world. You will be encouraged to think about deep questions such as how human beings should live, what values are being promoted in society, and how different religions interact with modern culture. Here at Newman we offer a lively, multicultural environment in which students from a variety of religious and non-faith backgrounds can flourish. The **Single Honours Theology** course offers the opportunity to study all the key areas of the subject, including Christian theology, philosophy of religion; ethical issues; biblical interpretation; and Islam and other major world religions. - The interactive teaching style used at Newman enables you to learn actively through debating and sharing ideas. - The approach to teaching and learning also centres on developing your ability to read and engage with primary texts, such as the scriptures and creeds of the world’s religions, and the original writings of philosophers and theologians. - Study trips are offered annually, to, for example, local places of worship, art galleries, and historic Cathedrals. - Newman is almost unique among UK University Departments in offering optional modules in Religious Education to help prepare interested students for a future career in teaching.
