Canterbury has the top-ranked Religious Studies programme in New Zealand for research excellence according to the national Performance Based Research Funding (PBRF) assessment, and Canterbury has one of the best libraries in Australasia for the study of religion. A strength of our programme is the range of disciplines in which our staff have been trained: anthropology, history, literary criticism, philology, and theology, allowing students to approach the subject from a variety of standpoints, enhancing their critical analysis and intellectual development.
Please note that international students only pay domestic fees for study at PhD level.
