Welcome to the Department

The Department of Theology and Religious Studies is a forward-thinking and supportive environment where you can explore traditions, ideas and questions relating to religion. We welcome students of all faiths and none, offering a warm and friendly community for study or research, with support every step of the way.

The department is based just minutes from Canterbury Cathedral, the birth place of English Christianity. However, the strengths and interests within our department mean that you can study a broad range of areas including Buddhism, Judaism and Hinduism, with some unique courses that you won’t find elsewhere.
