What we do

The Department of Theology & Religious Studies at King's College London is a vibrant department reflecting a wide range of approaches to the study of religion: anthropological, cultural, historical, political, philosophical, sociological, textual, and theological. There is a particular focus on the three 'Abrahamic' religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and their interaction. King's has drawn outstanding scholars from all over the world to teach key aspects of these religions: their histories, social contexts, material cultures, philosophies, belief systems, practices, and the texts they hold sacred.

The Department's work, however, goes well beyond study of the Abrahamic tradition. We are also pleased to offer a range of modules on Buddhism and courses and programmes focussing on the anthropology and sociology of religion, including degree programmes focussing on religion, politics, and society.
