|FIRST (JUNIOR FRESHMAN) YEAR Three year-long overview courses are taken jointly by single honour and TSM students: Introduction to World Religions, to Biblical Studies and to Theology. Single honour students also take: The Qur’an and its History of Reception, and Religions in the Ancient Mediterranean; Religion in Public: Great Speeches, and Great Images; Introductions to Philosophy, and to Theological Ethics in Pluralist Societies. SECOND (SENIOR FRESHMAN) AND THIRD (JUNIOR SOPHISTER) YEAR From second year onwards, students choose their modules (12 in single honour, 6 in TSM). In second year, students can replace one of them by a Broad Curriculum module (see www.tcd.ie/Broad_Curriculum). They can learn a biblical language, or Arabic. FOURTH (SENIOR SOPHISTER) YEAR All students write a thesis of 15,000 words with a supervisor chosen from an area they want to specialise in, and choose four modules. The programme consists of three strands: Religious Studies explores religion as an enduring feature of culture (Theory of Religion), using methods from psychology, sociology, philosophy, anthropology, aesthetics and the cognitive sciences. Using historical and comparative methods, the diversity of religious traditions is investigated in World Religions. Biblical Studies investigates the historical and cultural contexts in which the Bible originated and the intellectual currents with which Early Christianity interacted. Key biblical texts and their histories of interpretation are studied. Students can take a biblical language, equipping them with specific skills required for taught masters and postgraduate research in Biblical Studies. Theology investigates how key thinkers conceive of God in relation to human reason and freedom, of incarnation and redemption in their significance for reflections on the self, history and human diversity or the relation to science and politics. Ethics studies approaches human agency and responsibility, from the flourishing life in community to principled autonomy and cosmopolitanism.|
|The programme provides students with capacities that are decisive for all professions where an understanding of cultural processes and of the intellectual resources of religious traditions play a role: insight into 3000 years of religious practice and reflection on human life, knowledge of key texts from Antiquity to Modernity, rigorous and succinct writing, clear and effective communication, analytic and comparative thinking. Our graduates have excelled in many different professions: as a University Vice-President, as Advisory Counsel at the Office of the Attorney General, as Barrister and Chair of the Irish Criminal Bar Association, in the Department of Foreign Affairs, as an RTE multimedia journalist, as publishers, university lecturers, museum curator, in foreign aid as Education Officer of the Bishops’ Appeal, as teachers of Religious Education, in international business and insurance, for example Willis Foundation, London, in management positions of migration and of disability support services, in human resources and in health care professions, and as Best Chef at the Metro’s Young British Foodies awards.|
