Why Religion, Philosophy and Ethics?

You’ll examine philosophy through the ages, from its emergence in ancient traditions to contemporary research on religion in the digital age. Work with a global network of scholars on diverse topics, from Pagan traditions and North American Satanism to the manifestation of religion on the internet through UFO cults. Go on fascinating field trips within the UK and overseas, to locations such as the Hindu Temple in Neasden, the Mezquita Cathedral in Córdoba in Spain, and Leicester’s world-famous Diwali festival (additional costs may apply, see course web page for details).You’ll draw on the expertise of experienced lecturers including published authors, internationally recognised for their work and research in a range of specialist fields, as you explore a range of perspectives on the purpose and meaning of life. As well as learning through lively and interactive debates and workshops, you’ll also benefit from opportunities to hear from high-profile guest speakers.
