Theology, Religion, and Philosophy of Religion (TRPR) is a broad and demanding degree that addresses fundamental questions through a range of religious traditions and philosophical standpoints. Encompassing the history, practice and thought of the major world religions of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Judaism, the course develops an understanding of the significance of religion and its cultural contexts. Students have considerable freedom to create a varied programme of study by exploring a diverse range of topics. Alternatively, they can specialise in a specific area of interest. More information about the course is available on the University website.
