Christian Religious Studies is a multi-disciplinary academic field devoted to research into Christian beliefs, behaviors, and institutions. It describes compares, interprets, and explains Christian Religion, emphasizing systematic, historical and cross-cultural perspectives.
The study is based on a thorough study of the Bible and reflects on the history of Christianity from its origin to its present state by analyzing the literature of the earliest Christian movements.
It focuses primarily on the mission of educating in the area of the nature, history, and function of Christianity. It provides students with a deeper knowledge of Christianity and presents them with the ability to understand the background to problems of the modern world and also the opportunity to find peaceful solutions through dialogue and mutual understanding.
At Redeemer’s University, we provide an avenue within the school and the community for the exploration of the historical, intellectual, social, and cultural aspects of Christianity. Our programme curriculum is designed to help students think about religion and its connections with social issues, popular culture, ethics, global affairs and philosophical questions.
Successful students should expect to emerge from the programme with a set of analytical skills, theoretical perspectives and practical methods for interpretation on this all-important feature of human experience that will prepare them to thrive in an increasingly pluralistic and global community.
