We welcome and encourage applications for postgraduate degrees by research. In addition to topics focusing on single research areas, we actively encourage interdisciplinary research that cuts across the spectrum of religion and theology studies, or other intellectual disciplines in the Faculty of Arts and beyond. Joint supervision may be provided.
The department has over 40 MLitt/PhD students currently registered on research projects in religion and theology.
We currently have three research awards on offer:

You will also benefit from the Graduate School of Arts and Humanities' skills training programme, which allows you to extend your range of academic and professional skills. You may also be given the chance at an appropriate stage to teach undergraduates, and you will be offered training for this purpose, leading to formal accreditation.
The Graduate School offers scholarship opportunities and other financial aid to Arts applicants on both taught and research programmes.
New studentships are available for arts and humanities PhDs, via the South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership.
