It has a multidisciplinary nature, involving textual study, philosophical thinking, ethics, social understanding and the skills of analysis and reasoning. It provides an excellent

Progression and Career Opportunities

Religious Studies is widely taught at many universities, sometimes as its own discipline, or combined with Theology and/or Philosophy.
A Religious Studies or Theology degree is a purely academic degree which is well respected by employers, and graduates enter a very wide range of career areas.

I was thinking of staying at school, but now that you are offering RS I am coming to Newcastle Sixth Form College!
