On this course you will combine philosophy with study in religion and theology, taking an equal number of credits in each subject.

For philosophy, you will study units covering introduction to philosophy, logic and realism and normativity, as well as undertaking an extended essay.

For religion and theology you will take a symposium unit in religion and theology (a small, intensive seminar) in your first year, as well as a combination of mandatory and optional units throughout the course. You will also have the option of writing a dissertation in your final year.
