The Religion modules include Religion at Work, Religious Activism, or Religious Fictions. The Politics modules include International Security, British Government, or The Global South and Development.

One third year module, Radical Orthodoxy: Christianity and Politics, is designed to increase reflective and critical skills concerning matters of politics and religion, specifically Christianity. Third-year students also have the opportunity to complete a dissertation.
