This module will introduce some of the key issues and approaches involved in the study of religion, with the aim of providing a basis for further study over the next two years. It will provide students with the theoretical and methodological backgrounds needed for the study of religion, both within and across traditions, and examine them within the context of specific religious traditions. It will also seek to develop some of the key transferable skills needed for undergraduate work in this field, such as critical thinking, effective writing, use of electronic resources, etc.
