Theology (Philosophy and Ethics) *FEES PAYABLE* at New Hall School

Course description

Philosophy of Religion encompasses a wide range of academic disciplines: logic, epistemology, cosmology, natural theology, psychology, sociology, history and ethics. Students gain an appreciation of major philosophical thinkers and movements and acquire the ability to convey complex ideas clearly in written and oral form. This course fosters skills of critical and literary analysis and essay writing. Communication skills are developed through debate and discussion.

Religious Studies is an academic subject, well respected by universities as an excellent grounding for any arts or social science based degree course. The subject is favoured by employers in a wide range of careers, particularly those requiring precise analytical skills or an understanding of human nature, society and ethical issues, or those involving a high level of communication skills. Popular careers followed by students include teaching, law and politics, journalism and media, human resources, psychology, medicine and social work.
