This degree enables you to study the history, philosophy, psychology and sociology of education alongside an exploration of a range of world religions, their origins, their practices and their philosophies. The programme will equip you with a broad and deep knowledge of both academic studies in education and religion. You will learn how to draw upon a wide range of intellectual resources, theoretical and ethical perspectives, and academic subjects to illuminate your understanding of education and the contexts within which it takes place. Simultaneously, your curiosity will be stimulated about the variety of religious cultures across the globe, both past and present, engaging you in the in-depth study of sacred, significant, popular and vernacular texts, as well as the history, practices and developed theology of one or more particular religious traditions.

The assessment methods for this programme incorporate a variety of both traditional and innovative formats. There will be a blend of essays, exams and website development work. You will be asked to produce and present work through a combination of wikis and blogs, or to produce video presentations or give a live presentation. You will also create research posters reporting on the results of your investigations and be taught how to present your work in the format of professional magazine-style reports.

Great place, with so many friendly people!

Ormskirk is a little small, but that’s the only problem! The teachers are incredibly supportive and friendly, and you'll have access to loads of helpful resources on your course.

I can thankfully say that I made the right choice in uni for me. I honestly love it here and will be really sad to leave when I graduate. I can happily vouch that there are things to do if you don’t drink or do clubbing etc. here.
