Course summary

Theology and Philosophy are of great importance for understanding the world in which we live, as both our history and our modern culture are shaped by religious beliefs and philosophical traditions. This is an ideal course for the student with wide interests who loves thinking and debating. The course will encourage you to consider the deep questions facing individuals and society about life and death, culture and identity, and the responsibility of human beings to one another and to the environment. Almost every story covered in the media has an ethical, philosophical or religious dimension to it, so that theology is always relevant to the issues of today.
