Religious Studies, A-Level


Does God exist? What is the right way to act? Is stealing always wrong?

On this course you will gain a thorough grounding of theology in society and our personal lives and beliefs. This is a challenging yet rewarding subject that requires engaged commitment and the essential need to read and assess complex material independently.

Over the two years, you’ll study two main topics. Philosophy of Religion, including arguments for and against God’s existence, the possibility of miracles and the nature of the universe. Religious Ethics, including a discussion of morality and the use of religious language to express moral ideas.
