The Department of Theology and Religious Studies has vibrant atmosphere, where students of theology and philosophy interact with scholars of a diverse range of fields, including but not limited to biblical studies, sociology of religion, Islamic studies and critical theory. It is a fertile and friendly atmosphere for both taught and research MAs, where students often seek to organise their own activities, be it book groups or post-graduate research seminars.
