They introduce core concepts, methods, and examples from around the world – including Europe, the Middle East, India and China. A third first-year module can be chosen from options within the PPR department or other departments.In the second year, a core module Exploring Politics, Religion and Values introduces major theories about these three areas and their relations.

Such examples might include, for example, religious nationalism in India or Burma; culture wars in the USA; the Brexit debate; controversies about gender and sexuality. In the third year, you will also write a guided dissertation on a topic relevant to the intersection of religion with politics and/or religion with values. You will be able to propose a topic that interests you.For the other modules in the second and third years of your degree you will have a choice from within the PPR department and other departments.
