Pastoral and Social Studies

Our three academic departments manage our various undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, whilst maintaing their own research focus and housing our research centres and institutes.

Heythrop has one of the largest Philosophy Departments in the UK, which together with the Theology Department, offer a personalised teaching that is a special part of our student experience; our Pastoral and Social Studies Department brings together study of Christianity and ministry. All of our departments' research is supported by one of the oldest and most complete library collections of its kind in Great Britain.
