Philosophy, Science and Religion (online)

Study a wide range of courses offered by the School of Divinity and the Department of Philosophy.

About the study area

Philosophy, science and religion are three endeavours that shape in far-reaching and fundamental ways how we think, what we value and how we live. Public discourse, professional life, politics and culture revolve around the philosophical, scientific and religious ideas of our age; yet they and their relationship to each other are not well understood.

This programme allows a great deal of flexibility between full-time and part-time modes of study and different exit routes depending on your interests.
