Religious Studies A level at King Edward VI Sixth Form College
Religion is fascinating and can be studied by anyone with an open mind. No religious faith is assumed, nor need you have taken Religious Studies at GCSE, but it is an ideal choice if you enjoyed it at school. This course is for anybody who has ever been
interested in finding out more about God, the Bible, learning how to live, and the ‘big questions’ of life!
The AS course includes the following topics:
Unit 1. The New Testament: birth narratives, miracles, parables, passion and resurrection narratives.
Unit 2. Philosophy of Religion: 'Can we prove God's existence? How 'good' is God? If God is all-loving, why do we suffer? Does the presence of alleged design in the world 'prove' that God designed it? What should we make of religious experiences?'
The A2 course addresses the following questions:
Unit 3. Philosophy of religion:Is religious faith rational? How can we talk about God? What sense can be made of miracle claims? How ‘free’ are we?
Unit 4. Religious experience: a synoptic study. Is it possible to directly experienceGod? What should be made of people’s claims to religious experience?
