The BA in Theology, Religion and Philosophy of Religion is one of the broadest available at the University of Cambridge, and draws on disciplines ranging from philosophy and history to psychology and literary criticism. Graduates pursue careers in a variety of fields, including journalism, teaching, social services, and the charity sector.
