Postgraduate study – Masters

We warmly welcome enquiries about taught or research postgraduate study at Masters level.

Our Masters degrees combine an element of classroom-based teaching, as well as dedicated research time leading to a dissertation.  We do not offer a specific Critical Religion Masters degree because a primary objective of the Critical Religion project is to further interdisciplinarity.  We are planning to offer an MLitt in Religion and Politics, probably from 2016/17, that would engage with a wide range of scholars across the School of Arts and Humanities (and beyond) with core and other courses based on work carried out by Critical Religion staff.

There are two main pathways for study at the present time:

Taught Postgraduate study with Critical Religion options

You would enrol for a Taught Postgraduate degree offered by the School of Arts and Humanities that allows you to incorporate Critical Religion option modules.  The School’s full list of Taught Postgraduate courses offers a variety of options; we can advise on opportunities to work with us in these contexts.

MRes in Humanities

The main programme that we use for Masters level study is the MRes in Humanities, which allows considerable flexibility in direction of study, including the incorporation of key elements of Critical Religion-related thinking.  It involves the production of a longer dissertation than a standard Taught Postgraduate degree.

If you are interested in pursuing the MRes in Humanities, please contact the member of staff with the most appropriate research expertise for your interests.
