Human beings always have had, and always will have, worldviews, and fundamental beliefs about the way the universe is, and their role in it. This is the part of the human condition that is studied in the Theology and Religion Department, from a range of methodological and disciplinary perspectives: social scientific/anthropological; textual; historical, and philosophical/ethical. The Theology and Religion Department is a place where ‘belief’ and ‘beliefs’ are taken seriously, respected, and studied, whether those beliefs are atheistic, humanistic, or religious. So, for example, if you are interested in worldviews, including, for example, atheism, Christianity, or humanism, the Department of Theology and Religion is the place for you.
We are located in the beautiful city of Durham with its home in Abbey House, right next to Durham Cathedral, a UNESCO world Heritage site.
