Applicants are encouraged to approach potential supervisors prior to application.
Students can pursue traditional areas of study through Theology and Biblical Studies.
Central to our department too is the social scientific study of religion, together with philosophy of religion, the world of Jews in modern Europe, contemporary Islamic thought, and Chinese religions.
These research units have been entrusted with the teaching of theology and religious studies in the Faculty programmes, with research, with the formation of research personnel, and with social and ecclesiastical services related to each discipline.
