Philosophy and Ethics at The Bramcote College

Course description

The course is aimed at pupils who have achieved a C or above at GCSE. You do not have to be religious to choose this course. It is good to have balanced viewpoints and not be biased! Philosophy and Ethics is a subject that makes you think about the ethical, individual, moral, social and contemporary issues in the World today.

The two topics covered are:
Philosophy of Religion:
*The Existence of God – Does “He” exist?
* The Problem of Evil and Suffering
* Religious Experience Religion and Ethics: Natural Law
* Situation Ethics – “To do the most loving thing”
* Utilitarianism – “The greatest happiness for the greatest number”

At A2 there is also an extra compulsory unit: Religion and Human Experience which allows you to gain a breadth and depth of knowledge of the subject as a whole.
You will be practising and developing your skills by writing practice exam questions to show your knowledge and understanding of the topics covered. You will be taught by two specialist teachers who have taught the course before with good results.
Over the two years, you will develop many of the skills needed to be successful in life: analysing texts, and applying critical judgements, evaluating and reflecting your own values and opinions in the light of your learning.
