More about the course

A degree in Religion and Asian and Middle Eastern Studies offers the opportunity to appreciate the qualities of religions often radically different from western traditions. This enables students to pursue answers to compelling questions regarding the nature of human values, meaning-making, wisdom and artistic expression. The demands of such study ensure that graduates are equipped with a breadth of thought and quality of communication ideally suited to a range of careers.

The University arranges lectures (up to six weekly) and classes. For theology subjects and some Asian and Middle Eastern Studies subjects, a large part of the week is spent in private study in preparation for tutorials, which are usually held with college tutors once a week. Subjects which require a great deal of language work are taught for the most part in classes, which may meet three times a week or more.
