Theology and Religious Studies

Undergraduate courses in theology, divinity and religious studies often tend to be inter-disciplinary in that they encourage students to think critically about the artistic, intellectual and cultural heritage and/or philosophical implications of seminal religious texts and traditions. Whether your interest in religion is personal, intellectual or vocational, an undergraduate course will train you to become a scholar of religions and develop a host of transferable skills, including independent writing, extensive research and analytical thinking, which may be useful for jobs in many fields.
