Religious Studies Level 3

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms R. McGregor

The course challenges students as they begin to assume adult responsibilities. By doing a more in depth analysis of scripture, history and belief students are more able to gain the reflective tools to successfully live as a productive member of society. Edmund Rice and the universal Catholic Church set a frame work for students to navigate lifestyle and potentially life changing decisions for themselves and the wider community. 

Ethics and ethical issues explores ethical theories and looks at the basis, the teachings and general application of Catholic ethics. Students are asked to consider moral issues from a Catholic perspective.
