Religious Studies equips students with marketable, transferable skills that are attractive to universities, colleges and employers, including:
- analytical and strategic thinking;
- research skills;
- critical judgement;
- the ability to work with abstract, conceptual ideas;
- an ability to ‘understand both sides’ and negotiate and resolve conflict;
- problem-solving skills;
- leadership skills;
- understanding of the impact of conflicting ideologies; and
- an appreciation of human diversity, belief systems, cultural and spiritual experiences.
Many of our past-pupils have used their success in Religious Studies to move on to further and higher education . Their acquired skills are now helping them complete degrees in fields such as Education, Law, Medicine, Theology, Business, Music and Film Studies to name a few.
