This joint honours degree focuses on the place of religion in society, both in the present and in the past. The sociology aspect of the degree explores dimensions of the social world, including actions, structures, beliefs, power and representation. The course is equally weighted toward both subjects.

You will acquire a solid foundation in several religious traditions. In sociology there is particular emphasis on sociological theory and its application to real-world concerns, including issues of ethnicity, beliefs and multiculturalism. The wide-ranging, flexible curriculum offers progressive intellectual challenges and consolidates your experience throughout.

In year one you will have one mandatory unit in theology and one in sociology, together with four optional units of your choice (two from each subject).

In years two and three you will continue taking optional units in both subjects, covering a diverse range of topics, which may include Christian History and Theology; Modern Slavery; Perspectives of Power; Islam; Buddhism; Judaism; and Environment and Society.
