Progress in Religious Studies Taster Day 2018

Bookings have now opened for our Progress in Religious Studies Taster Day which will be taking place on Friday 23 March 2018

Religious studies in Cambridge 

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.


Progress in Religious Studies Taster Day

Run by Fitzwilliam College, the Progress in Religious Studies Taster Day is 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 will give students a flavour of what goes on in Religious Studies and Theology in Cambridge.

Refreshments will be provided free of charge throughout the day, as well as a complimentary lunch in our buttery.
