Course Overview

Philosophy of religion will cover Christian scholarly views, amongst other world religions, on a range of topics including the existence of God, religious experiences and the language used by theologians.

What will I learn?

Religion and ethics will explore key topical debates in our society such as euthanasia, sexual ethics and business ethics. These discussions will focus on whether morally good actions involve following societal rules or considering consequences and will look at the changing attitudes towards morality in the world.

The course will study the impact of religion on the world with particular focus on major world religions such as Buddhism. Lessons will look at how religion is portrayed in the East and West and the impact that religion has on popular culture. A large topic will be the way that religion is portrayed in western media and debates will surround the positive and negative connotations of this.

How will the course be assessed?

You will be assessed by examinations at the end of the two-year course.

You will also be expected to carry out independent study and other personal development activities alongside your programme, such as additional workshops, an Extended Project Qualification, leisure extracurricular activities, volunteering or work experience, or part-time employment.
