In today's complex and fast-changing multi-cultural world, the study of these time-honoured subjects is more vital and relevant than ever.
There can be few better places to study theology, religion and philosophy than Winchester. We have close links with Winchester Cathedral, which has been a famous site of Christian worship for more than a millennium. We are within easy reach of major centres such as London and Southampton, where you will find almost every faith community present in Britain. (Photo: Winchester Cathedral, image John Crook)
