Universities consider re-naming courses in “Theology” and “Religious Studies” to “Worldviews”.

REC member organisation, TRS-UK, which represents departments of Theology and Religious Studies in Universities and other higher education institutions, are being encouraged by their new president; Dr Opinderjit Takhar to consider the benefits of promoting their courses under a new name. Dr Takhar believes that the names currently used for Theology and Religious Studies courses, can lead to young people misconceiving course content and aims. A subject title of “Worldviews” could help address this issue and inspire more young people to study the subject at degree level.
