Curriculum Philosophy and Ethics

The main aims of this course are to encourage students to develop their interest in and enthusiasm for a rigorous study of religion and relate it to the wider world; to adopt an enquiring, critical and reflective approach to the study of religion and also have the ability to reflect on and develop their own values, opinions and attitudes in the light of their learning.

Over two years it will equip students with useful analytical and interpretative skills which will be a great help in a variety of professions including law, government, journalism and education.
