Religion, Culture & Society (Foundation Entry)

4 Years
September 2022
Campus Taught

Explore the conflicting relationships between religion, culture and society and the relevance of belief systems to modern life on our Foundation Entry course in Religion, Culture and Society.

Foundation Entry degree courses are ideal if you’ve got the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to directly join an honours programme. It’s great stepping stone to a full degree.

On this course you’ll Investigate the historical and contemporary effect of religion, culture and society on education, politics and social experiences.

You’ll challenge the fundamental principles of belief systems and prejudices, graduating with an understanding of religious culture and traditions from major UK faiths and how they interact with each other.

Why study with us

  • Religion, Culture and Society achieved 100% student satisfaction in the National Student Survey (NSS) 2019.
  • We subsidise national and international field trips to Rome, Istanbul, Auschwitz, Cordoba, Berlin, Budapest and Cartagena.
  • You’ll get the chance to spend time studying abroad at one of our partner universities - the exchange network includes countries such as Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Mexico, and USA.

What you'll do

  • We draw attention to shared values, beliefs and practices – we’ll support you to achieve a mutual appreciation of different faiths and traditions.
  • Join field trips where you’ll develop a lived experience and awareness of cultural heritage, traditions and practices of different faiths.
  • Our team foster a strong sense of community through social and professional networking and our end of year ball is a totally student led experience.

Module Overview

Course Delivery

Following the pandemic, we have found that some courses benefit from a blended learning and teaching approach. Therefore, the majority of your teaching will be face-to-face on campus aside from a small amount of online teaching where we have learnt it works best.


Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of our published course information. However, our programmes are subject to ongoing review and development. Changing circumstances may cause alteration to, or the cancellation of, courses. Changes may be necessary to comply with the requirements of accrediting bodies or revisions to subject benchmarks statements. As well as to keep courses updated and contemporary, or as a result of student feedback. We reserve the right to make variations if we consider such action to be necessary or in the best interests of students.
