    Description

    A Joint Honours degree programme involves the study of two subjects to Honours degree level. If you study a subject in a Joint Honours programme, you work at exactly the same level and to the same academic standard as students taking that subject in a Single Honours programme. Joint Honours students are simply required to choose fewer topics from the range of options available in each half of the programme.

    Theology explores different religious traditions and how they have understood the world and the place of humans within it. A challenging subject, it takes in areas as diverse as ancient religious texts, contemporary global politics, and profound issues of ethics and philosophy. It is an excellent way to reflect upon your own and other peoples values and beliefs, from a stance at once empathetic and critical.

    Career opportunities

    A popular career choice is teaching, but the range of other careers that our graduates have entered is enormous, including work for religious organisations, journalism, the legal profession, business, social work and personnel management.

    Course Content

    First year

    Theology and Religion: Your first year lays foundations, and introduces you to areas that you can explore in depth later. There are three core courses, which provide introductions to Biblical Studies, Christian Theology, and the Study of Religion. Optional courses include introductions to Hinduism, Judaism, Islam and Sikhism, to the study of the Holocaust and to the Arabic, Hebrew, and Greek languages.

    Second year

    Theology and Religion: Here you have more freedom to choose your own subjects for study. These range from the study of the Bible or the Qur’an, to the philosophy of religion, religion, society and politics.

    Third year

    Theology and Religion: Again, you have an extensive range of modules from which to choose. You also have the option to do a dissertation in Theology.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
