Department of Theology and Religion

 Theology and Religion

Since the University's foundation in 1832, Durham has offered education and research in Theology and Religion which is second to none in the world. The Department consistently tops league tables for teaching, research and graduate prospects. Our 25 academic staff, 150 postgraduates and annual undergraduate intake of 71 makes us one of the most varied and dynamic departments in Britain. Together, we form a lively and welcoming community of all faiths and none, learning and researching Biblical studies, Christian theology and the sociological and anthropological study of religion. Our students at all levels learn to think rigorously and independently both within and beyond their own traditions, and to be researchers in their own right. If you are looking for first-rank education and research in Theology and Religion which is authentic, rigorous, international in outlook, up-to-date in methods, and which draws on deep roots, you have come to the right place.
