Course summary

Overview

Religious, philosophical and ethical concerns often feature in the media and underpin a range of controversial issues in the world we share.

If you like thinking about and debating these subjects then you’ll enjoy this course.

You’ll be taught by an experienced team of academics who have published widely on topics such as Buddhist philosophy, conflicts over Jewish identity and interfaith dialogue.

Why Study Religion, Philosophy and Ethics?

Are you fascinated by religions and their role in shaping our diverse, globalised and multicultural world? If the answer is yes, our course will stretch your mind and introduce you to different ethical theories so that you can develop as an open minded and independent critical thinker.

Our challenging and stimulating course will help you to gain sound knowledge and an in-depth appreciation of philosophical and ethical issues affecting contemporary society and you'll explore their relationship to different religious traditions. You'll have opportunities engage in lively debate and will explore issues from a critical perspective.

You'll be studying in the heart of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with the ancient buildings of Canterbury Cathedral, St Augustine’s Abbey and St Martin’s Church just a stone's throw away. Here you can immerse yourself in religion, surrounded by buildings that have inspired generations of people to develop themselves both spiritually and through education.

Your future career

The Religion, Philosophy and Ethics degree opens up routes into teaching, through the PGCE, and prepares you for further postgraduate study at all levels through to PhD. In the context of contemporary, multicultural Britain, many public sector institutions such as the police, the civil service, and the social services, value people with expertise in this area who can support diversity and inclusion. This qualification will also help prepare and develop you for various roles in religious institutions, roles in charities and not- for-profit organisations, in development work, community leadership roles, and aspects of welfare.
