These courses, offered by the Centre of Religion, Reconciliation and Peace, are a response to some of the most complex challenges facing the world today.
This interdisciplinary programme draws on the Department's wide-ranging expertise in both religious studies and theology. Death, that universal inescapable reality, is understood differently by different cultures and religious traditions, and those understandings are played out in different rituals. A highly popular course, its aims form the basis for the 'Death Days', annual conferences about death, dying and bereavement.
There are further opportunities for postgraduate study available through our relationship with Sarum College in Salisbury. We validate four MA programmes run by Sarum College:
