Program Information

School: St. Thomas More College
Faculty: Religious Studies
Degree: Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study: Religion/Religious Studies
Description: The Religion & Culture programs explore the range of religions and religious experiences within particular cultural, historical, ideological, and current settings in order to promote awareness of how religions shape human experiences, societies and cultures. Students will be encouraged to understand themselves better as global citizens by exploring the lived experiences of religions and cultures that are relevant to their work and life in the social realm and collective cultural heritage. Students will develop their intellectual and practical skills including writing, critical and creative thinking, inquiry and analysis.

An Honours degree prepares students for postgraduate studies and is the first-step towards the thesis program leading to a Master’s in Religious Studies. Honours students may also find their degree to be a valuable basis for continuing studies in theology training. Double Honours Programs may be taken in combinations of two subjects. In this program at least 36 credit units will normally be taken in each subject. The two departments together may specify up to 84 credit units. For further details, please see the Degree Requirements in the Arts and Science section of the Calendar.
