Trosolwg y cwrs

In our rich and rewarding BA Religion and Theology degree, you will explore the histories, cultures and beliefs of both major and less well-known religious traditions, taking your pick from a variety of approaches and research specialisms that extend beyond Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam and Christianity.

You tailor your own programme from a wide range of modules. You can combine thematic, social scientific, linguistic and historical approaches, addressing both the history and basic beliefs of religious traditions and their role in public life, from religion in the media to mythology in modern cinema. Examining religious history and culture across a broad spectrum, you will also consider the political and social dimensions of religion, from gender and sexuality to warfare and social ethics.

Bringing a wealth of expertise across theme and religious tradition, our academics share latest thinking in the classroom, including their own cutting-edge research.

Our supportive community enables you to flourish. We collaborate on first-name terms, and small group teaching means every student can participate in discussions, something consistently praised in National Student Survey feedback.

Strwythur y cwrs

Your programme is delivered across three years. In each year you must acquire 120 credits (totalling 360 credits by the end of your studies).

There is a mixture of compulsory and optional modules in each year. 

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2020/21. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2020

Blwyddyn un

In year one, you will take two core modules and select the rest from our list of options.

You may also have the opportunity to select from a range of modules taught within the other departments in the School.

Blwyddyn dau

In year two, you will take two core modules and select the rest from our list of options.

Blwyddyn tri

In year three your modules include the compulsory ​Dissertation or Critical Translation. You will again study 120 credits to complete your studies.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut caf fy addysgu?

You will be taught through a combination of lectures and seminars, amounting to approximately eight to ten hours a week of formal teaching. This will be supplemented by independent research and study through which you will acquire more advanced knowledge and understanding.  If you take a scriptural language, you will be taught in small classes (of c. 20 students).

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

You will be allocated a personal tutor who will help you reflect on your performance on the course and advise you on study techniques, module selection and career planning (in conjunction with the University’s Career Service). They will also provide a first point of contact if you experience any difficulties with your studies or in your wider life.

An extensive programme of careers lectures and workshops is also delivered within the School.

We also provide a range of staff that are available to provide further support, including a senior academic support tutor, a scheme co-ordinator and specialist librarians. A member of academic staff acts as a designated Disability and Diversity Officer and ensures that reasonable adjustments are made for students with disabilities.

The school also has a dedicated employability and placement officer, who can help you in preparing for your chosen career (from C.V. development to the facilitation of placements and internships).

Feedback

Feedback on formative work is given frequently and in a wide variety of formats and is intended to help you to identify strengths and weaknesses in your learning.

Summative Feedback will be given to you in writing and will provide details of both how a decision with regard to the final mark of a piece of work was arrived at and suggestions for future improvements.

Sut caf fy asesu?

Modules are assessed by means of written examination or coursework, or by a combination of the two (with staggered deadlines in the first and second semesters). You will receive a timetable of the assessments that determine your final marks at the beginning of each year, which will help you to organise your studies. These final, or summative, assessment deadlines will be staggered across the final four weeks of each semester.

The format of coursework varies, encompassing standard essays, reviews, extended essays, portfolios of work produced across a whole academic year and gobbet or film analyses, as well as presentations (both individual and group). You will also be required to complete various pieces of formative work, which are designed to assist you in achieving the learning outcomes of modules.

Formative Assessment (does not contribute to your final mark). This may be written or oral and may be submitted formally to a tutor or presented during seminars. Preparation for formative work will normally be done during your independent study time.

Formative assessment will rarely be of draft work for summative assessments (though essay plans might be the subject of formative feedback). Instead, knowledge and competency will be developed by means of formative assessment tasks that complement, but rarely overlap with, final assessment.  

Pa sgiliau bydda i’n eu hymarfer a’u datblygu?

In 2015/16, 94% of the School’s graduates who were available for work reported they were in employment and/or further study within six months of graduation. Some of our graduates enter professions that make direct use of their academic expertise, while others compete very successfully in a wide range of other fields, in both the public and private sectors (from teaching to graduate-track management). We organise interactive workshops with the Careers Service to help students identify their skills and attributes and have our own, in-School Workplace Placements and Employability Officer.
