Course Summary

The MRes Theology and Religion is a research programme with some provision for taught modules. This programme is suitable for a wide range of interests. Students can pursue various approaches to religious thought and practice, including, for example, Pentecostal, Evangelical, Queer and Intercultural theologies; gender and religion; religion and culture, philosophy of religion and philosophical theology; religion and politics, and a range of approaches to religious texts such as literary, ideological, reception-focussed, historical or cultural methodologies. In addition students can undertake research projects in areas such as religion and society, practical theology, and ethics. This programme may be followed as an end in itself, but also provides an excellent foundation for subsequent doctoral research. The MRes is an excellent transition into research for applicants who already have a Theology or Religious Studies background and are exploring the possibility of future doctoral studies, a research or other academic career, or simply want to explore in detail a topic that they find particularly fascinating.

This degree will provide excellent preparation for employment and this will be further enhanced by a range of employability support services offered by the University.
