The Department is home to programmes in Theology and Religion and to the Centre for Theology and Public Issues.
The Department has a strong record of research. It was the highest ranked department in Theology and Religious Studies in New Zealand, and the third highest across departments in all disciplines, in the most recent assessment of research quality in New Zealand. Its staff have extensive publication records and all contribute regularly to both national and international conferences. Details of their research can be found by following the links below.
Students may study on campus in Dunedin, or elsewhere in New Zealand through the extensive Distance Programme taught online or through an audio-conference network. A full list of courses and programme options is available elsewhere on the programme websites for Theology and Religion. We welcome inquiries for both undergraduate and postgraduate study.
Single courses in Theology and Religion may be taken by students enrolled in other degrees throughout the University or as stand-alone 'Certificate of Proficiency' courses.
