This interdisciplinary programme gives you an in-depth and critical understanding of the role of religion in society and politics across local communities, including the UK, American, African and South Asian contexts. Combining topics across religious studies, politics, international relations and sociology, you’ll gain an insight into the complexity of religion, politics and society in relation to issues such as migration, race and ethnicity, development, environment, conflict and violence, sexuality and gender. Core modules will introduce you to key concepts and approaches in religious studies, politics and sociology, and you’ll even carry out fieldwork with religious groups in this diverse and multi-faith city. But you’ll also choose from optional modules that reflect our wide range of research interests, so you can focus on topics that appeal to you. It’s a fantastic opportunity to explore some of the most important issues affecting public life today.
