What is Religious, Moral and Philosophical Studies?

 

Religious, Moral and Philosophical Studies Qualifications raise awareness of the relevance of religion, morality and philosophy in today’s world. These Courses address the impact and significance of world religions, contemporary moral questions, and religious and philosophical questions. Learners have opportunities to consider both religious views and viewpoints independent of religious belief.

 

Religious, Moral and Philosophical Studies enables learners to investigate, critically analyse and evaluate religious, moral and philosophical questions and responses, and to develop the ability to express detailed, reasoned and well-structured views.
