This programme combines the perspectives of philosophy, theology and religion to enable you to develop a reflective understanding of some pervasive and problematic features of the world and ourselves. You will acquire a solid grounding in the main themes and methods of philosophy and theology, equipping you with the critical and analytical skills necessary to engage with the key themes, debates and methods of both disciplines. Your study-time is divided equally between the two subjects, combining core modules in Years 1 and 2 from the areas of classical epistemology, metaphysics and moral philosophy with the areas of theological philosophy, Christian ethics and doctrine. In your final year you’ll study optional modules chosen from a diverse range in both philosophy and theology, and you’ll also write a dissertation on a philosophical or theological topic of your choice.
Students on this programme have the opportunity to study for one semester at a partner institution overseas or follow a four-year "with Study Abroad" programme which allows you to spend your third year abroad. You may apply directly for the four-year programme or transfer once you are at Exeter. Find out more on our study abroad web pages.
