East Asian Religions and Cultures

This programme will give you an insight into the religious and philosophical traditions of East Asia, putting them in their cultural and historical contexts and exploring how they are changing in an increasingly globalised world. You’ll study the main traditions of Buddhism, Daoism, Shinto and Confucianism, as well as forms of folk religion and the encounter with Christianity and Islam. Using a range of approaches, you’ll explore these traditions through the prisms of anthropology, sociology, theology and cultural and historical studies. You’ll also have the chance to specialise in topics that particularly interest you when you select from optional modules. You even have the option to learn Chinese, Japanese or Thai, although we teach all modules in English.
