History and Philosophy of Science and Theology and Religious Studies - University of Leeds

This joint honours course blends the study of science with the study of religious and societal traditions. History and Philosophy of Science uses philosophical, historical and social perspectives to understand what science is and its role in society. You’ll explore the history of scientific thought, the links between magic, science and religion and the nature of scientific knowledge. Theology focuses on the beliefs and ideas of one religious tradition. Religious Studies looks at different religions and faith communities. Both subjects think about how religions shape and are shaped by wider society. At Leeds you’ll be able to explore the role and development of religious belief and practice from both perspectives. You could also choose to study major world religions, what they have meant to people over time and how they are evolving today. During your course you’ll also be able to choose from a wide selection of optional modules, meaning you can tailor your degree to suit your own interests.
