Studying on our conversion course in Theology & Religion will set you on the path to pursuing your interest in this significant and very human subject.


Our Graduate Diploma in Theology & Religion offers you the opportunity to pursue your interest in this significant and fascinating feature of human existence even though your undergraduate degree may have been in another subject.


This highly flexible conversion course gives you the control to select from a wide range of optional modules based on your intellectual curiosity and career aspirations. Successful completion enables you to go on and study for an MA in the field of Theology & Religion.


We are a recognised global leader in the exploration of Theology & Religion and you will be able to choose from topics as diverse as Hebrew Prose Texts, The Links Between Science & Theology, New Testament Ethics and The Globalisation of Christianity.


Within the Department, we offer a breadth and depth of theological and religious expertise through the Centre for Death & Life Studies, the Centre for Catholic Studies, the Michael Ramsey Centre for Anglican Studies and the International Centre for Moral Injury.


You will also benefit from highly effective cross-departmental and interdisciplinary links between the department and, for example, the University’s Institute for Middle Eastern & Islamic Studies and the Institute for Medieval & Early Modern Studies. We also work in partnership with external theological institutions.


This course gives you the means to explore the aspects of Theology & Religion which interest you, regardless of the subject of your graduation degree, delivered in the inspirational environment of the city of Durham itself where the magnificent Cathedral is evidence of the city’s own major religious role over nearly two millennia.


Durham graduates are in demand across many sectors. The world-class study facilities, combined with a research-led approach to learning and the Department’s international outlook mean our postgraduate taught courses and research degrees provide the fundamental skills and personal qualities needed to succeed in the workplace.


Our Theology & Religion graduates are equipped to follow a wide range of careers, including law, politics and government, marketing, business and finance, industry, charity work, the media, journalism and the clergy. Many progress into careers with religious institutions across the world, while others work in schools, colleges and universities. Our taught MAs also offer a pathway into research and many graduates take the step into higher-level studies.


Previous employers have included Linklaters, Kirkland and Ellis, Coltraco Ultrasonics, the Home Office, Durham Police and Jaguar Land Rover.
