Religious Studies research

The Department of Religious Studies brings together leading researchers across a wide range of specialisms including biblical studies, Eastern and continental philosophy, and the sociology, anthropology and critical psychology of religion. We are committed to developing the study of religion across these disciplinary boundaries in ways that generate new insights as well opening up new themes of interest across our areas of work.

The Department of Religious Studies was ranked 7th in its subject area in REF2014, with all aspects of its research environment graded 'world-leading' or 'internationally-excellent'.
