Philosophy, Ethics and the Development in Christian Thought is a foundational subject for many other subject areas.  Philosophy is concerned with seeking to find answers to “ultimate questions” about the meaning, purpose and origin of life.  In Ethics students consider different approaches to making moral decisions and apply these ideas to various issues.  Students are also given the opportunity to study the Development in Christian Thought, whereby they focus on key Christian beliefs, such Life after Death, The Person of Jesus, Liberation Theology and issues surround gender.  Students during lesson time will be able to assess the history behind these beliefs and how they work in a modern society.

 

Philosophy, Ethics and the Development in Christian Thought is an essay based subject in which students develop the skills of logical and rational argument, analysis and critical evaluation. This subject is examination based, at the end of both Year 12 and 13 students will three exams one for each component of the course.
