Why Study Religious and Theological Studies?

Religious and theological studies helps you better understand your world, your values and those of your future colleagues. 

We teach you about the ideas, issues, theories and developments that have influenced religion and religious traditions. You’ll gain knowledge of the historical and cultural significance of major religions such as Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Islam. You’ll explore the meaning and purpose of life.

These studies prepare you to be an active global citizen and to excel in diverse work environments. They also allow you to sharpen your writing, research, analytical and critical thinking skills.
