Student reviews

An excellent module run by a helpful module team with some excellent tutors.

The course content is varied, interesting and introduced me to different religious traditions and ideas about religiosity and spirituality that have really broadened my outlook on life and other people's experiences.

I found that it helps to attend as many tutorials as possible whilst getting to know your own tutor and their specific requirements, as they are the ones marking your assignments, and are there to support you.

This is truly a great module, full of very interesting ideas and information on what makes society tick and how religions have evolved over the centuries. Keeping away from theology and focusing on the critical examination of the course concepts, helped prevent issues that could drag the subject and module down. In addition, I found support from the tutor and the rest of the faculty on the religious forum (even after the module was finished) motivating and interesting. This support and continued input (rather than the subject) is why I will return again to study the next Religion subject 'Why is Religion Controversial (A332)' in the future, just not now. Thanks and keep at it.
