Theology and Religion

Theology and Religion

The study of Theology and Religion develops skills in many different areas of humanities, including philosophy, history, language, and literary and textual criticism. The Oxford course attracts students from a great variety of intellectual and religious or non-religious backgrounds.

Students may choose to focus on the origins and development of Christian theology, or on the study of other major world religions such as Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. They may also study topics such as the nature of religion, and the anthropology, psychology, or sociology of religion. Theology and Religion may either be studied as a single subject, or combined with Philosophy or Oriental Studies

Course options

Paper options within Theology and Religion are available here.

Visiting students normally take FHS papers (that is, papers sat by Oxford undergraduates in their second or final years of study). We try to offer all subjects offered by the faculty subject to tutor availability.
