Research is at the heart of the Department of Theology and Religion, which attracts a diverse and vibrant group of students from across the world. Our current research interests and expertise encompass biblical studies, Jewish studies, early Christian history, modern theology, practical and ecumenical theology, ethics, philosophy of religion, the interface between science and religion, and much more.

Postgraduate students in all of these fields are invited to become part of our academic community – in which both discipline-specific and multidisciplinary skills are nurtured and tested, and where the faculty works closely with students to encourage creativity and enable critical thought.

The department places strong emphasis on research-inspired teaching and enjoys an excellent reputation for teaching of the highest quality. Our academic and administrative support staff are committed to helping you make the most of all that the university offers.

The Theology department has an extremely supportive group of staff and an exciting range of research specialisms. There are also postgraduate research seminars available to widen interest.

The staff have a great mix of faith backgrounds, which is refreshing and very helpful in terms of an open study environment. It is small enough to have a supportive, ‘family’ feel but also has an excellent reputation for research and some well-known theologians on staff.
