The BA Comparative Religion and Social Anthropology course explores how religion is inextricably bound up with ways of being human. On this course, students will explore themes such as ritual, myth, sacred space and iconography as critical features of human societies, both past and present. Students will study topics such as Judaism, the problem of evil, the Bible, social theory, power, and ethnography. The first year will cover research methods and key issues in Religion and Anthropology. Students will focus on issues related to religion as culture, such as the role played by gender, politics and narrative representation, as well as the developing relationship between anthropology and religion. In the final year, students may focus further on specific themes and issues, including writing an independently researched dissertation on a topic of their own choice.
