Philosophy and Ethics AS/A Level at The Commonweal School

Course description

Philosophy and Ethics deals with some of the most important questions in life - Who are we? Where do we come from? What is the meaning of life?

The skills of evaluation and analysis that Philosophy and Ethics teaches you are applicable to almost any walk in life. It is not just about what others think; it is about learning to think for yourself.

Entry requirements

Although you don't need to have studied Philosophy and Ethics beforehand, it does help to have at least a B in a GCSE Humanities subject and English to show you have developed written and evaluation skills.

Philosophy is a way of thinking. Those who study Philosophy are asking questions about the world; its people and ideas, that although may seem simple at first are actually very complex. Philosophy is a challenging but rewarding course.
