Religion is one of the most fascinating dimensions of human life and society. Indeed, the last twenty years have highlighted the impact that religious thought can have on so many aspects of life and society – political, social, even economic. We cannot understand life in today’s globally-connected world without asking the religious and philosophical questions that play into many of the events that impact on all our lives.
The Department of Theology, Philosophy and Religious Studies at Liverpool Hope is at the cutting edge of exploring these exciting and exhilarating questions. Our perspective is global, and we are interested in the big picture. Our Department is built around an international team of researchers and teachers who are experts in their fields, and who have developed a series of inter-linked programmes that will equip you with the insight and knowledge to bring to bear in a range of future careers that require engagement with questions of religious belief, thought and identity.
Use thee pages to check out the programmes that we offer. Our theology programmes bring together the classical study Christian thought with a focus on World Christianity. Our philosophy programmes can help you to explore the deep questions of life and morality – and our single Honours Philosophy Ethics and Religion degree will expand your horizon to non-Western philosophical traditions. And of course, if you take Religious Studies with us you will come to a rich understanding of a range of different religious traditions from across the world.
