Only available in Canberra to students in teaching degrees.
Our multicultural societies are home to a vibrant mix of religious beliefs and experiences. Undertaking a major/minor sequence in Study of Religions is an exploration of this diversity and its implications for contemporary society. Students will study the three major world religions —Christianity, Judaism and Islam — as well as having the opportunity to study religions practised in contemporary South and East Asia. We also look at Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander spiritualities, and their connectedness to Country, as well as exploring the spiritual and religious traditions of other Indigenous peoples from around the world. In all units of study, Study of Religions goes beyond merely understanding the practice of religion. Students will graduate with a critical awareness of the historical and contemporary aspects of each religion, as well as the need for interfaith relations and dialogue.
