at our Open Days
Welcome to the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Kent.
You’ll find yourself in a warm, friendly, diverse and intellectually challenging environment. Our staff are experts in their fields and committed teachers with interests in areas including the sociology of religion, East Asian medicines, ethics, religion and film, death and the afterlife, atheism and the secularisation of religion.
Prior knowledge is welcome, but don’t worry if you don’t have a background in our subjects. We start from the beginning. What we ask from you is curiosity to explore and academic engagement.
You’ll be part of our welcoming community of students and scholars. We’ll value your input and perspectives. Your learning experience won’t be restricted to formal teaching. As you’ll discover, Kent is a place to inspire and this goes beyond the classroom.
We look forward to meeting you!
Dr Chris Deacy
Head of Department of Religious Studies
