Religious Studies

Edexcel A Level in Religious Studies

The course covers a study of Islam, Philosophy of Religion, and Ethics.

Students are given the opportunity to study well known philosophical and ethical theories, which relate to religion. These include the classical arguments for the existence of God, and ethical theories such as Utilitarianism, Situation Ethics and Natural Law.

Students are encouraged to think logically and apply their own reasoned ideas, both in group discussion and debate, and in assessed essays.
