Religious Education A Level at Claremont High School Academy

Course description

Religious education at A-Level provokes challenging questions about the ultimate meaning and purpose of life, arguments for Gods existence, beliefs, the nature of reality and ethical issues of right and wrong.

What we Study

Ever wondered what would happen if we found conclusive proof that God doesn’t exist and the impact that would that have on society, the world, and education?

Philosophy: The central question in philosophy is whether we can prove that God exists. During Year 12 we look at four key arguments, The Design argument, Cosmological argument, Miracles and finally The Problem of Evil. During Year 13 we reflect on the use of religious language and consider if talking about religion is meaningful. Could it ever be possible to prove Gods existence through religious experiences?

Ethics: Students study the relationship between religion and morality. Here students analyse the possibility that morality is dependent on the existence of God as the ground of moral values. Students also examine a range of issues associated with sexual ethics, including, homosexuality and pornography; which are considered from religious and secular perspectives. There will also be investigation of the Utilitarianism and Situation Ethics.
