Religious Studies combines well with all other subject areas, developing knowledge of moral, ethical and cultural issues so important in today’s multicultural society. The course explores the meaning of religion in the modern world, with a particular focus on the study of ethical debates, philosophy and the study of the Hindu faith. Religious Studies encourages students to think about the world we live in. The promotion of community cohesion is at the heart of the subject. We focus on learning from rather than simply learning about religion.
Progression routes: Religious Studies develops excellent transferable skills leading to a wide range of degree courses and career opportunities, particularly those that involve working with people. Former students have gone on to study in a wide range of fields, including medicine, journalism, events management, youth work, teaching, archaeology and social work.
