COURSE OVERVIEW
This course covers the philosophical, psychological, social and spiritual aspects of religion. It aims at giving those who already have a Bachelor degree in a relevant area the possibility to explore its relationship to Religion. The programme aims to bridge Theology with an area of study undertaken in the first degree. Its scope is also to familiarise students with a variety of approaches to the academic study of religion. The programme supports advanced student training in areas of their specialisation.
