The BA in Theology and Religion gives you an excellent grounding in all the subjects essential to a good understanding of the discipline, from biblical studies and church history to modern theology, philosophy and ethics, and gives you increasing flexibility and choice as you progress. The programme enables you to explore the contexts, development and meanings of the texts of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament (with the option of studying the texts in the original languages). You’ll also study the whole history of Christian theological thought, including aspects of Christianity’s relationship to other religions; the critical questions – philosophical, political, ethical and historical – raised in the modern and post-modern world about religion in general and the Christian religion specifically; and the critical questions raised by the Christian religion about the world. You’ll be able to customise your degree by choosing from a long list of modules covering issues as diverse as sexuality, criminal justice, feminism, the environment, science, anthropology, evolution, art, the body, the soul, heaven and hell, heresy, morality and ethics, martyrs and pilgrimage, life after death and the study of religions. Opportunities are available to add value to your studies by undertaking field trips, a work placement, or studying abroad. You can also take modules in Biblical Hebrew or New Testament Greek, or take credits in the departments of Arab and Islamic Studies, Sociology, Philosophy and Anthropology, Politics, History or Classics, many of which offer modules directly related to theology, world religions, ethics and philosophy.
