Religious Studies A-Level at Kendrick Academy

Course description

The study of religion is one of the oldest academic subjects. It raises philosophical and ethical questions, which are central to all cultures, such as: Who am I? What is the purpose of life? Is there a God? What form does religious experience take today? To what extent and how might the writings of religious thinkers in earlier centuries and in non-western cultures be appropriate today? What impact has religion on the world and behaviour today?

Course content

The new A-level course, to begin in September 2016, will include the study of one Religion, its beliefs and practices and development, Philosophy and Ethics.


Examinations (100%).

Future opportunities

Religious Studies combines well with other A Level subjects such as English, Humanities and Languages.

Skills of research, selection of relevant material to produce a logical argument, supported by evidence, and the ability to consider a complex issue from a variety of viewpoints, provide a strong grounding for those wishing to pursue a wide range of subject areas at degree level.

A-level (and similarly a degree) in Religious Studies enables students to develop the skills of communication, team work, time-management, self-management and organisation, and problem solving which are the key transferable skills required for the majority of careers.
