In the Religion and Theology programme offered by the University of Bristol we use a wide range of linguistic, historical, philosophical and theological methods, and provide many opportunities for postgraduates to build a strong portfolio of skills and experiences in preparation for an academic career and professional life beyond university.
The majority of graduates from this programme develop careers as academics in secondary and higher education, while maintaining the capacity to undertake new and innovative research in the field of religion and theology.
