The training and development of postgraduate students is an important part of the Department’s work. Our taught MA programme, the MA in Religion, reflects core areas of expertise in the Department and is also available with a term in Paris. Taught MA students are encouraged to play an active role in seminars and other research activities in the Department.
The Department also supervises a large number of doctoral students working on projects ranging from the critical, theoretical examination of key concepts and thinkers in the study of religion, the study of religious subjectivities in a wide range of historical and contemporary contexts, and forms of religion and the sacred in contemporary society and culture. The Department also provides a regular theory reading group for its doctoral students. It also plays a leading national role in providing methodological training for doctoral students working in the study of contemporary religion.
