Philosophy and World Religions
"When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat. Adam called his wife's name Eve; because she was the mother of all living."
The Philosophy and World Religions course is delivered via the Goldsmiths' Sutherland Centre at Ashton Sixth Form College and in close collaboration with the Department of Religions and Theology at the University of Manchester. It examines broad questions of theology and philosophy and encourages pupils to think laterally about their learning.
The seminar series for this course is themed around the theme, "Beyond Belief". This draws from exciting content from BBC Radio 4's ongoing broadcast, which can be accessed here.
Holly Morse, Lecturer in Bible, Gender and Culture at the University of Manchester, outlines further details about the Beyond Belief project in the video below.
Pupils on all six Year 12 strands participate in Access Week at the end of the intensive course, allowing for space and time to be dedicated to more specific areas of study led by our team of tutors.
