Religions and Education (Distance learning) - MA, PGCert (Part-Time, 2019 Entry)

This course is aimed at teachers of religious education and related subjects, and those working with young people in a faith or belief context. The PGCert is a subset of the MA and consists of two modules. It will give you an opportunity to engage with the work of Warwick Religions and Education Research Unit (WRERU).

The course reflects approaches and issues arising from the Council of Europe’s ministerial recommendation on teaching about religions and beliefs and members of WRERU have contributed to the Council of Europe’s work in this field, especially using the interpretive approach and dialogical approach.
