About BA Theology and Sociology

This joint honours degree focuses on the place of religion in society, both in the present and in the past. The course is equally weighted toward both subjects.

You will acquire a solid foundation in several religious traditions and in sociology. There is particular emphasis on sociological theory and its application to real-world concerns, including issues of ethnicity, beliefs and multiculturalism. The wide-ranging, flexible curriculum offers progressive intellectual challenges and consolidates your experience throughout.

In year one you will have one mandatory unit in theology and one in sociology, together with four optional units of your choice (two from each subject).

In years two and three you will continue taking optional units in both subjects, covering a diverse range of topics, which may include Christian History and Theology; Investigating the Social; Islam, Buddhism, Sexuality and Society; Judaism; and Environment and Society. You can also choose to study one of the following languages: Chinese, Greek, Hebrew, Japanese, Latin or Sanskrit.
