Politics and Theology & Religious Studies at Aberdeen gives you solid grounding in politics and political systems across the world, and combines it with a fascinating exploration of the origin, function, and meaning of religion, studying and comparing the major religions across the world, and with special focus on Christian faith in historic and contemporary contexts. You’ll graduate with highly-developed specialist and academic skills applicable in many roles. In Politics you’ll be right at the front of debate on current world events – including Britain’s relationship with its European neighbours and movements of regionalisation within the EU and UK. You’ll explore voting behaviour, different political systems, making and implementing policy, nationalism, concepts of democracy, and ever-present concerns of conflict and peace. You can also take advantage of unique options made possible by the research pedigree of our academic team with a strong track record in publishing international papers and articles. In Theology & Religious Studies you’ll gain a sound understanding of the major religious traditions of the world, including their historical development and contemporary importance, with a special focus on Christian faith, life and doctrine in its historical, institutional and contemporary context. Your studies will include biblical languages, the history of the church in the west, the Reformation in Scotland, the role of religion in ethical and political debates, and religious aspects of disability. As a graduate you’ll have many career options including politics, church ministry and administration, media and journalism, public service, charities, NGO and international affairs, business, and education.
