Faculty Open Day

Theology, Religion and Philosophy of Religion at Cambridge is exciting, challenging and interdisciplinary. Our students enjoy a uniquely personalised degree, exploring the big questions about human culture and experience, developing expertise and an understanding of religions and gaining key language and research skills. Our graduates are highly-prized by employers in business, public services, media and education.

Each year we hold a Faculty Open Day where prospective applicants can join us for talks, taster lectures and Q&A sessions with staff, alumni and current students
