Philosophy & Ethics

Why study Philosophy, Ethics and Religion?

Philosophy, Ethics and Religion explores the way we view the world and how we understand human nature. Ethical issues dominate the newspapers and questions concerning the right and wrong way to behave are pertinent in every area of life. During lively lessons, students are encouraged to question, discuss and present their own arguments, comparing and contrasting these with the theories of great thinkers. The skills developed are applicable in careers such as medicine, law and business, as well as being valuable preparation for university. This subject is also highly regarded by Russell Group universities.
