Overview

Examine the roles and influences of religion and ethics in contemporary society

Explore the relationships between religion, ethics and society at a time when it has never been more relevant or important to do so.

You will consider the way religion has sculpted every facet of contemporary life and how it continues to influence ethical positions – from the way we are buried, abortion rights, and euthanasia.

In addition, you will investigate the complex questions surrounding the definition of ‘religion’, discuss important issues such as religious conflict, and study key ethical and religious thinkers.

You will get to work closely with experts, accessing a unique level of interaction with our academics. They will encourage you to engage in investigative research that will develop your problem-solving and critical analysis skills.

On this course you will:

  • Explore the exciting diversity of different beliefs, practices and worldviews.
  • Develop your ability to analyse complex material related to global issues of religious belonging, pluralism, diversity, and identity.
  • Learn how to use your philosophical skills to think carefully and critically about problems beyond the classroom.
  • Build your confidence as you learn to communicate effectively both orally and in writing.

The Course

Explore major questions and concepts around religion, ethics and wider society

This course looks at the role of religion within modern society, and is ideal for those who do not align to any one religion.

We live in a world where some of the most serious threats to justice and well-being are related to failures to engage effectively with religious plurality.

Year One

In your first year, you will be introduced to fundamental ethical ideas from the past 700 years.

You will explore concepts such as faith and reason, the existence of truth, the concept of the ‘subject’, and the relationship between religion and violence.

You will also be given a grounding of key ideas from the realms of politics and law as you consider their place within contemporary society.

Year Two

In your second year, you will begin to examine the application of religion and ethics to a range of contemporary and relevant issues, such as climate change and the environment, political extremism, freedom and justice, bio-ethics, and modern interpretations of the Bible.

Year Three

By your final year, you will have a strong sense of what area you would like to focus on for your final dissertation project.

Alongside your thesis, you will have the opportunity to explore more specific aspects of Religion and Ethics, including: the fanatical ideologies of twentieth century European dictators, British culture wars, political theology, and the relationship between religion, sexuality and gender.

This list is indicative and subject to change.

Faith and Reason

This module explores the relationship between faith and reason. When are beliefs justified? Are some beliefs beyond rational explanation? Why do people hold such beliefs? What cultural assumptions inform the way that we think about belief, reason and God?

Teaching

At our university, you will find a friendly atmosphere and an encouraging team of staff who will work hard to support your learning.

All of our tutors have recognised national and international research expertise and a passion for their respective subject areas. This ensures that you have access the latest debates within the study of Religion and Ethics.

Much of our teaching is in small groups. Our commitment to smaller class sizes allows you to feel more confident to discuss your ideas in a supportive environment.

It also allows your tutors get to know you and how best to aid your development.

Assessment

You will be asked to write essays as you might expect, but you might also write book reviews, reviews of films, write reports on projects, make a video, construct an exhibition and make presentations.

We will give you feedback as you go along, meaning you don’t have to wait until the end of term to know whether you have succeeded or not. You will get a lot of support so there is no need to worry about assessment.
