Subject Spotlight Videos

Our Subject Spotlights introduce you to our wonderful lecturers who have created these videos to show the wide range of courses you can study at Callywith, what you can expect to learn and to give you an idea of what life as a student at our Outstanding college is like.

A Level Philosophy of Religion & Ethics

A Level Philosophy of Religion and Ethics addresses some of the big questions that face human beings like: What is the purpose of my life? Why should I do what is right? Is there a God? And if so, what sort of God might that be? If you are the type of person who is accused of thinking too much, if Google can’t answer your questions and if you like spending time wondering whether your real life is the one in your dreams and that you are reading this in your sleep, then this course might be for you.
