Progress in Religious Studies Taster Day

Religion is a major force in the world today, not just in traditional hot-spots like the Middle East, but increasingly in the so-called “secular” west. Religious studies in Cambridge is a rigorous and exciting discipline involving the study of scriptural texts of various religions, the ideas which emerge from those texts, and the contexts in which those ideas are put to work.

Event Summary 

Our Progress in Religious Studies Taster Day is an event for Year 12 students from state schools intending to study Religious Studies and/or Theology at university and for their teachers. Scholars from Fitzwilliam College give students a flavour of what goes on in Religious Studies and Theology in Cambridge.
