Mode of Teaching Delivery and Timetables
The Department of Study of Relgions is committed to provide a high quality educational experience, offering our students as much face to face time as possible whilst keeping students and staff safe. To comply with government guidelines and to ensure the safety of both our students and staff, the majority of our degree programmes will be delivered in a blended fashion in 2020-2021. This means students will engage in both online learning (live online events and pre-made online content) and on-campus learning (in-person sessions at UCC). How each programme will be delivered depends on a number of factors including the discipline being studied, the class size, external accreditation requirements and of course public health guidelines.

Dept of Study of Religions Information
Study of Religions - Covid-19 Statement
The Study of Religions Department is working with the University Management in line with Government guidelines in order to make the learning environment as safe and accessible as possible.
Concurrent with advice the Department has received, teaching and learning on our programmes will consist of a hybrid model and include:
- some face to face teaching and learning in small group tutorials/seminars;
- online lectures and tutorials/seminars;
- Students will have 2 lectures and 1 tutorial/seminar per module each week.
- The format of presentation may change but the scheduled hours will not.
The Department staff will ensure that every effort is made to make in-person learning spaces safe for everyone, including the provision of staff PPE, attention to social distancing and limiting of numbers in classrooms. We are committed to finding safe solutions to things that might arise as the term progresses and as circumstances change. We aim to maintain effective communication with our students as regards protocols, as well as any changes made to class format.
Those students unable to attend campus due to illness, quarantine, or concerns about underlying medical conditions, will have online access to all classes including E-tutorials.
Although, following national and UCC staff and student safety guidelines, modes of teaching (online/blended/ on-campus) may be subject to change, the Department is committed to ensuring continuity of teaching for all its students, and to avoiding any disruption in their learning experience.
