O que eu aprenderei?

Unique in Ireland, this course explores traditions such as Buddhism, Islam, Indian and East Asian religions, and different forms of Christianity, indigenous religion, Judaism, Sikhism, Zoroastrianism and new religious movements.

Religions matter. Every world-news bulletin has stories about the impact of religions on individuals and communities. Whether in India, Ireland or Iran, forms and expressions of religion are constantly changing. Some people turn to "alternative" spiritualities in quest of personal fulfillment, while others seek to strengthen "traditional" religious values in a fast-changing world.

Religions and Global Diversity is the study of religions, and is a course offered only at UCC, with its tradition of independent thinking. Unlike traditional theology courses, Religions and Global Diversity does not assume you are a believer and is not about promoting religion. It’s a fascinating subject for anyone with an interest in the power of religion, whether or not you follow a religion.

This is the only course in the study of religions in Ireland that enables you to study a wide variety of religions including Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, East Asian religions and indigenous religions with experts in these traditions from an open-minded, academic, non-confessional standpoint.

Skills and Careers Information

Religions and Global Diversity is recognised by the Teaching Council as a qualification for intending teachers of post-primary RE in Ireland.

As Ireland and societies worldwide remain culturally diverse yet increasingly closely interlinked, understanding different religious beliefs and practices becomes essential for teachers, public sector workers and professionals in NGOs, the media, business, healthcare, human resources, etc.

As well as the valuable transferable skills acquired through any arts/social sciences subject, this course provides particularly deep insights into different religions and cultures, which will help you in the workplace and in any kind of employment involving people.
