Philosophy & Theology
There are usually five or six undergraduates studying Theology & Religion or Philosophy & Theology in each year at Mansfield.
Mansfield admits students to study Philosophy and Theology on a regular basis, typically one or two each year, and is very happy to receive applications.
There are no specific A-levels (or equivalent qualifications) on which we insist as a condition for studying Philosophy and Theology, but we are looking for critical, clear and reasoned thinking, as well as real enthusiasm for the subjects on offer.
Philosophy and Theology brings together some of the most important approaches to understanding and assessing the intellectual claims of religion. The degree is constructed in the belief that the parallel study of these related disciplines provides new perspectives on each, leading to deeper understanding. It fosters intellectual capacities that you can apply across both disciplines, and develops skills which you will find useful for a wide range of careers and activities after graduation.
Whilst students must choose from a number of core papers in all three years of their degree, there is great flexibility in the second and third years, with choices made from a wide-ranging set of options. Precise details of these can be found on the University website.
