One of our Theology tutors explains….
Why did you choose to study Theology at Oxford?
I initially had no clear cut plan about what I wanted to do but knew that I thoroughly enjoyed the humanities. Theology and Religion encompasses many aspects such as learning a language, historical evaluation, sociology and literary analysis. The modules that you are able to take are very broad ranging. For example, my first term involved looking at the portrayal of Jesus in John’s Bible as well as the depiction of Jesus in film. Furthermore, I believe that religion has played a fantastically important role in shaping society today. It has the power to convince people to do good and evil. If we understand religion, we can understand society better and indeed the individuals.
