Year one of the Religion and Theology degree from University of Bristol provides you with a solid foundation in religion’s complex interaction with the modern world. Subsequent years allow you more flexibility to shape your degree to suit your interests.
In years one and two you take units covering issues and approaches to the study of world religions. You will be offered optional units on various aspects of Buddhism, Christian history and theology, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Chinese and Japanese religions. You can also choose to study one of the following languages: Chinese, Greek, Japanese, Latin or Sanskrit.
In your third year you will choose optional units, which will allow you to study an array of subjects or to specialise in particular areas. You will also produce a dissertation and have the option of doing field work.
Our welcoming classroom environment enables you to interact closely with lecturers. Tutors employ a variety of teaching styles, ranging from small group sessions to larger lecture units.
