What Will You Study

This new programme is the result of an innovative, interdisciplinary collaboration between the Postgraduate Quaker Study Centre at Woodbrooke, Birmingham and the Department of Politics, Philosophy, and Religion (PPR).

The course is designed to introduce you to the theories, issues and processes connected with the history, theology and sociology of Quakerism in a global context.The programme is especially relevant if you are interested in Quaker theology and history, the adaptation of religious groups to new social and geographical settings, globalisation and religion, and secularisation.

On successful completion, you will have the option of transferring to the MA in Quakerism in the Modern World. Alternatively, the Postgraduate Certificate in Quaker Studies is an excellent way to gain a foundation in the academic study of the Quaker past and present.

Core modules:

  • Quaker Theology in Context
  • The Sociology of Contemporary Quakerism
  • Quakerism, Peace and Justice
