Course information

Our MA in Religion, Culture and Society combines the disciplines of theology, philosophy, sociology, politics and international relations in an innovative, exciting and challenging postgraduate degree award. It aims to promote inclusivity, encourage reflection on interfaith dialogue and highlight the important contribution religion and belief makes to community cohesion and combating religious prejudice and discrimination.

You’ll evaluate how and why the role of religion and culture has changed within society and explore the impact and influence of religion and belief within economic, political and social constructs.

You’ll critically analyse religion and faith within the framework of theistic and atheistic approaches to spirituality, human rights, sexuality, territory and space, and cultural relationships.
