Religions and Philosophies Undergraduate Study

Religions have been powerful, dynamic and enduring forces throughout human history, having exercised enormous influence on the formation and development of global political, economic, cultural, moral and philosophical systems.

Equally, the study of religions and philosophies has been an integral part of SOAS’ 100 year history, which has led to our studying a wider range of traditions in more depth than any other programme in the field anywhere in the world: Buddhism in nearly all its doctrinal and regional varieties, Christianity in Asia, Africa and the Middle East; Hinduism, Islam; Jainism; Judaism; Shinto Taoism and Zoroastrianism can all be studied here.
