About Us

The School of Religion ranks in the top 100 in the world by QS University Rankings. It is one of the twelve Schools that comprise Trinity College's Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. Our faculty bring their innovative teaching and research to biblical studies, theology, ethics, theory of religion, and international conflict and peace studies as independent but related disciplinary fields.

The School's undergraduate and postgraduate programmes explore encounters between world religions and cultures from antiquity to the present day. They explore intellectual and institutional resources throughout history and apply them to the challenges and the opportunities societies face in an age of globalisation. Uniquely, we offer programmes based in Dublin and in Belfast.
