Subject Code: 4610

CCEA qualifications in Religious Studies are available at Entry Level, GCSE and GCE.

Religious Studies prompts challenging questions about the meaning of life, beliefs about God, the self, right and wrong, and what it means to be human.

It develops knowledge and understanding of Christianity and other principal religions, religious traditions and worldviews that offer answers to these questions. It provides opportunities for personal reflection and spiritual development.

Religious Studies helps students to reflect on their life experiences and the contribution of religious and spiritual dimensions.

Religious Studies gives students opportunities to:

  • develop understanding of how beliefs, values and traditions influence individuals, communities, societies and cultures;
  • make reasoned and informed judgements about religious and moral issues, referring to the principal religions’ teachings and developing confidence in their own beliefs and values; and
  • enhance their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
