The lively research-orientated atmosphere of our department offers a stimulating environment for graduate research.
The department represents a broad range of overlapping research areas. Students can pursue traditional areas of study through theology and Biblical Studies. Central to our department, too is the social scientific study of religion (anthropology), together with philosophy of religion, the world of Jews in modern Europe, contemporary Islamic thought, and Chinese religions. Staff are engaged in research and publishing at the cutting edge of their areas, and several are involved in editing leading academic journals and monograph series.
Students pursue their research by working with a supervisor, and the department's graduate seminars and day conferences offer excellent opportunities for interaction with other staff and students, including the chance to try out research papers on a friendly audience. We pride ourselves on the quality of our research training at every level.
