The primary focus of all our postgraduate degrees is to give people research skills, whether for academic work or for another career. Many professions today require investigative skills. Some in the media spend time researching angles of events that relate to religions. Some in the health service investigate the experiences of various cultural groups in accessing services. Many in museums, libraries and other archives require the textual and historical research skills that our courses teach. Postgraduate study in Religions and Theology gives you a high level qualification for a wide range of investigative tasks.
Many of those who complete postgraduate programmes take up positions in further and higher education in the field of Religions and Theology or related areas. Others may already be employed in a professional capacity in a relevant area. Careers in a wide range of fields are available as for all those graduating in Humanities. Whatever employment area postgraduates choose their studies will provide them with transferable skills as well as enhancing their intellectual and personal development.
