The overall aims of this course are to provide an understanding of some key issues in the Philosophy of Religion and Ethics and thereby develop students’ capacity for creating coherent and carefully balanced argument. Students will have the chance to develop transferable skills that will be invaluable for whatever university course or career they may choose in the future. They will be able to think more clearly and logically, spot flaws in arguments and express themselves fairly but firmly in group discussions. They will find themselves having impassioned discussions inside and outside the classroom as they follow in the footsteps of some of the great thinkers.
Students should have a GCSE grade 5 in Religious Studies or a similar subject, e.g. History or English.
