The Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Cambridge is a broad and demanding degree that addresses fundamental questions through a range of religious traditions and philosophical standpoints. Encompassing the history, practice and thought of the major world religions of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Judaism, the course develops your understanding of the significance of religion and its cultural contexts.
You have considerable freedom to create a varied programme of study by exploring a diverse range of topics. Alternatively, you can follow a particular pathway if you wish to specialise in a specific area of interest.
World class resources
Cambridge is an excellent place to study religion – offering access to the latest research and historic resources in the Faculty, College and University libraries. For example, the University Library holds the Codex Bezae (an important early version of the Gospel) and the Genizah collection (a globally significant source for medieval Judaism).
Our outstanding teaching is delivered by world experts in a variety of faith traditions and in the study of religion, religious practice, and philosophy of religion.
Excellent career prospects
Our course equips students with significant transferable skills that are highly valued in a wide range of professions. Around 40% of our students continue to further study in theology or related disciplines, teacher training or law conversion courses. Other recent graduates have gone on to positions such as equity broker for an investment bank, marketing campaign executive, personal assistant to the head of a philanthropic foundation, and assistant private secretary in the Civil Service.
