Department of Theology and Religious Studies

Meet the tutors

You will form a strong working relationship with your tutors, who will share their passion for the study of theology and religion, engaging you in conversation and debate about the thinkers and ideas that you will encounter.

They will encourage and support you throughout your course and help you consider and plan your career.

The mini-profiles below give you an idea of the areas they concentrate on but there is a great deal of overlap and cross-working.
