Schools and community - Theology and Religious Studies

Staff from the department of Theology and Religious Studies regularly visit schools in the Nottinghamshire region and nationwide. Our team includes experts in the study of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, atheism, the Bible, philosophy, ethics, art, literature, contemporary religion, religion and science, digital media and many other topics. We are always delighted to hear from school teachers, and we can work with schools to develop talks or videos on topics relevant to your curriculum.
