Discover our modules

Our modules are as diverse as our teaching staff. Here, they give you an overview of what you'll meet on our degrees.

Assistant Professor of Religious Ethics Dr Tim Hutchings describes his module Religion, Media and Ethics, which asks Can you live a good life in a world of media and tech?
