Class sessions are split between NCEA Level 3 and University course Phil110.

NCEA course - Philosophy of Religion
Philosophy of Religion is a rich field of intellectual inquiry. Students will start by developing a definition of "God". Students will then examine key arguments for and against the existence of this thing we call "God". The course will culminate in students examining both religious and non-religious answers to two ultimate questions: 1. Why does the universe exist?; and 2. Why is there pain and suffering in the world? Students will need to commit to the entire term.

University course - Phil 110 (Science: Good, Bad, Bogus)
Students enrolled for university study spend the second half of class session working through the week's lecture material.
