"When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That's my religion."
Welcome to an enquiring, critical and empathetic approach to the study of religion, philosophy and ethics. Students will be required to look at the writings of philosophers and theologians and recognise the contribution they have made to the fields of philosophy and ethics. You will learn to present and evaluate different viewpoints and be encouraged to debate, discuss and think through the issues raised. During the course students will be encouraged to relate learning to ethical issues that are currently in the news.
