Religion and Theology graduate gets published in leading academic journal

Milly Redman writes of her time at Bristol and how it led to her publishing an article in a leading theological journal:

The Theology & Religious Studies course at Bristol University served as a fantastic springboard for my career in the legal profession as I commence my training contract with the American corporate firm Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP in September 2013.  I enjoyed the diverse range of units on offer in the first year, which also allowed me to pursue my love of languages by taking post A-Level French and ab initio Mandarin as my Open Units. It was in my second and third years that I developed a passion for the relationship between the Catholic Church and the world religions. This led me to pursue the theology of Jacques Dupuis for my dissertation studies and I was drawn the contemporary aspect of studying Vatican II, which I enjoyed exploring through my presentation at the "Spreading the Word" postgraduate conference. I decided to put my dissertation forward for publishing with the Catholic ecumenical review New Blackfriars because there was great scope in this area for original academic thought and the opportunity to interact with the scholars which I encountered during my wide reading on the subject. I was thrilled when it was accepted! My Theology degree has equipped me with many transferable skills which I will carry into later life- and for the meantime I am spending the next 6 months working as a ski instructor in Japan.
