Description

A Joint Honours degree programme involves the study of two subjects to Honours degree level. If you study a subject in a Joint Honours programme, you work at exactly the same level and to the same academic standard as students taking that subject in a Single Honours programme. Joint Honours students are simply required to choose fewer topics from the range of options available in each half of the programme.

Theology explores different religious traditions and how they have understood the world and the place of humans within it. A challenging subject, it takes in areas as diverse as ancient religious texts, contemporary global politics, and profound issues of ethics and philosophy. It is an excellent way to reflect upon your own and other peoples values and beliefs, from a stance at once empathetic and critical.

Career opportunities

A popular career choice is teaching, but the range of other careers that our graduates have entered is enormous, including work for religious organisations, journalism, the legal profession, business, social work and personnel management.
