Theology and Religious Studies

Theology or divinity has been taught at the University since its foundation in 1451.

Today, theology and religious studies incorporates academic and vocational teaching and research across Judaeo-Christian traditions (both religious or secularized), as well as Islam and other world faiths. We also validate the degree programmes offered by the Free Church of Scotland College.

All of our subjects can be studied from within or without a personal faith base. If you choose to study with us, you can benefit from our multidisciplinary approach and supportive environment for learning.

Our excellent standard of teaching has been reflected in the 2015 NSS (National Student Survey), when students studying Theology with us gave the course an overall satisfaction score of 94%.
