Religious Studies is a subject for the curious: for those people who always ask ‘Why?’; those who are not content to just accept things at face value, but enjoy digging deeper, beyond the stereotype or the preconceived idea, to reach the heart of a topic.
In Religious Studies, students develop skills such as analysis, critical thinking, debate and argument, as well as empathy and respect.
They build a solid foundation of religious literacy (understanding the key teachings of all the major world religions), and use this to engage in thoughtful debate and reflection.
They are taught how to construct strong arguments.
