The Department of Theology and Religion has an outstanding international reputation in the study of all types of religion in the contemporary world, including inter-cultural theology, textual studies, pentecostal and charismatic studies, inter-religious relations, Islamic studies, and Quaker studies. Students from more than 20 countries study here, and most of the academic staff who work here are recognised leaders in their disciplines.
The department came near the top in recent national Research Assessment Exercises and also in national teaching assessments. Whatever your interests in religion and theology, it is likely that we share them amidst a diverse and friendly staff-student community.
