Level Four Modules

Understanding Level Four

Generally speaking, Level Four courses will offer you an introduction to a particular topic. Within the Department, Level Four modules provide introductory explorations of both Religious Studies and Theology. As a student on a Level Four module, you can expect to cover the main features, key developments and significant periods of a given religious tradition. You can also expect to use a range of methodological approaches to the study of religions, such as history, anthropology, textual study and so on. Our Level Four modules generally assume no prior knowledge and are grouped in broad study blocks.

Level Four modules thus form the foundations for the rest of your degree programme. As such, in order to proceed automatically to Year 2, you must successfully complete 120 credits worth of study at Level Four.  In addition to the modules, below, you may take a course in a wide range of other subjects, such as Philosophy, English, History, or a modern language.
