Department of Theology and Religious Studies


The Department of Theology and Religious Studies believes that knowledge should be shared and used to enrich the lives of all who live in the community, whether they study at university directly or not.

We are keen to encourage the teaching and learning of Religious Studies in a variety of contexts, including within school curricula. Many of our students go on to become teachers and we draw from an enthusiastic and well-equipped group to support our work with schools.

Outreach activities
Our outreach work aims to raise aspirations and progression to university.

Primary Schools

Working closely with primary experts in the Widening Participation team, we currently offer a “World of Biblical Languages” experience. In addition, we are happy to work with local schools to develop activities on request.

Secondary Schools and Colleges

We offer annual on-site taster days for local schools to encourage local post-16 students to engage with our subject and aspire to university study. We also work with individual schools to offer taster and revision sessions and would be happy to discuss developing additional activities on request.
