Philosophy and Ethics AS/A Level at Finchley Catholic High School
This course examines some of the fundamental questions about life: why are we here, how should we behave, and what happens when we die? The course is split into two sections: in the Philosophy of Religion, we study ways in which people have tried to answer
philosophical questions from a religious perspective; in Religious Ethics, we study the ways in which people make moral decisions, and the influences of religious belief or morality.
Among the issues students will study are war and peace, justice and punishment, medical and sexual ethics, and arguments about the existence of God. The course will suit you if you enjoy debating ideas, considering new concepts, and making up your own mind.
You will need to be able to write essays and enjoy reading.
Religious Studies is a rigorous academic subject and as such all universities, colleges and employers view it favourably. The content is particularly valuable for those wishing to study medicine, law, philosophy and politics. The skills developed will be
particularly useful for careers in law, government and the media.
