“The majority of the course consists of studying the philosophy of religion. You get to question, explore and assess different views held by different people. This encourages debate and helps you develop a variety of skills such as communication, as well as becoming more tolerant and aware of the beliefs of others we interact with. It’s interesting and useful.”
