Religious Studies


‘The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible’.
Oscar Wilde.

‘All men by nature desire to know’.

If these quotes are taken to be true then we are all philosophers to some extent. However, if they have left you with questions, then you are ready to consider the benefits of studying Religion and Philosophy. When reviewing the gravity of the topics covered, it is evident that philosophy actually tackles the fundamental ‘ultimate issues’ such as: why am I here? What is right and wrong? Can there ever be a ‘just war’? Religion and Philosophy is an intellectually demanding and academically enriching course, which encourages students to delve into the mysteries of humanity.
