Course info

Summary

Our BA Religion, Theology and Culture degree offers you the opportunity to explore traditions with deep historical roots that continue to shape politics, society and culture today. You will concentrate on four fundamental areas: religion, ethics, philosophy and theology/biblical studies. By doing so, you will develop the analytical skills to be able to understand the impact of religion and theology in both the contemporary, and the ancient and classical, world. The course tackles a wide variety of issues such as poverty and inequality, social justice, racism, violence, anti-Semitism, feminism and post-colonialism in the context of religion and theology. You will learn to think about the origins of religion in its various forms of expression, especially Christianity and Islam. You will also explore ethical and theological perspectives on human life, such as embodiment and gender; reason, faith, and revelation; relationships of love and friendship; human beings and the natural environment; death and dying; sin and forgiveness; virtue and character; and human rights. The degree includes the opportunity to undertake a work placement, to help you build skills relevant to the workplace and today’s jobs market. How you will learn You will explore the biblical and historical origins of Christianity, centred as it is on the historical figure of Jesus of Nazareth. As such, you will come to understand Christianity as an enduring historical phenomenon in terms of its development out of Judaism from the first century onwards. You will have the opportunity to study the sacred texts from Islam and Indian religion in the context of history and the contemporary world, especially issues of gender, western culture and methodology. You will analyse the cultural, historical and theological issues which inform the discourse on Islam, developments in Islamic countries, and Islam in Europe. Special emphasis will be given to the Muslim 'insider' perspective on issues and how this perspective compares with that of 'outsider' (especially Western) perceptions. The study of philosophy in religion covers both the western tradition and its even more ancient form in the Indian philosophical tradition. The problem of evil is studied from the perspective of Jewish thought and reflection on the holocaust.
