2. Who this course is for

Philosophy, Ethics and Religion is about people and their questions. The subject gets to grips with peoples real lives, what they believe and what makes them act as they do. It is also about societies and cultures often very different from your own, and how these have evolved over time. This course will appeal to you if you are enthusiastic and thoughtful enough to want to understand the deeply held convictions of others and to examine your own prejudices, assumptions and beliefs. You will be able to study what different thinkers have said on these questions, as well as studying a world faith in depth.
