Philosophy, Religion and Ethics

Philosophy, Religion and Ethics is a vastly wide ranging subject that covers topics from ‘Is there a God?’ and ‘what do we mean by the term ‘good’? to the purpose of zen meditation.   

Students of Philosophy, Religion and Ethics are able to explore abstract questions about life, death and meaning, whilst also developing a range of transferable skills such as problem solving and communication. The subject encourages critical thinking, pushing students to question what they really know and believe whilst also developing an understanding of why other people think and believe differently. Philosophy, Religion and Ethics produces students who are critical, reflective but also uniquely empathetic and tolerant of the complexity of views and beliefs which exist in the contemporary world.
