Theology and Religion
Dr Susannah Cornwall
We’re delighted to welcome you to the Department of Theology and Religion at Exeter. As you know, we pride ourselves on being a friendly and welcoming place to study, with a strong sense of community – while also maintaining the very highest standards of research and teaching. At Exeter you will study religious beliefs and practices from around the world and throughout history, which will challenge your preconceptions and encourage you to understand different worldviews even while disagreeing with them.
Well done for getting your offer! Uni is all about pushing yourself, learning new things and making friends – in our department, you’ll do all three! What's great about Theology and Religion is how passionate and enthusiastic our lecturers are and, with a relaxed family feel in the department, how well we all get on. In our community, you’ll get to know students of all years and be at the fore-front of big research topics alongside our lecturers. I hope you’re excited about coming to Exeter – we look forward to seeing you in September!

I most enjoy... The range. We grapple with history, ethics, politics, sociology and more! I love that I can apply some of the things I learn in the lecture theatre to life outside uni. Exeter is a fairly small city – there is plenty to do but not so big so you can't see your friends easily. I love cycling around the city and am constantly bumping into other students. The campus itself is extremely beautiful and it’s easy to get around between classes. I’m interested in going to live in the Middle East after my degree. I'd quite like to get involved in journalism.

BA Theology and Religion
My course is like no other course that I had researched as it was so varied and interesting in the modules that were available. The lecturers have broad and exciting areas of expertise and there is a lot of independence to choose your areas of focus and work by yourself. This is a small and caring department full of lecturers and older students who are always willing to help you out.
