The remaining courses may be selected from the list of electives set out below. The courses are subject to the approval of the supervisor and should be in the area of specialisation.


Students are encouraged to tailor their postgraduate degree structure so that they specialise in an area pertaining to their interest, such as a particular religion, comparative studies or a cognate topic that can be adequately supervised under the umbrella of the Department of Religious Studies.

Postgraduate Requirements

Students with an initial degree in another discipline may be required to complete certain courses to achieve equivalence with the requirements for a major in Religious Studies.
