Syllabus - Religious Tradition Depth Study - Outcomes
Religious Tradition Studies
This syllabus considers the five major religious traditions to be Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam and Judaism.
The purpose of this section is to develop a comprehensive view of religious traditions as living religious systems that link directly with the life of adherents. Elements raised in the Nature of Religion and Beliefs are covered in greater depth in the study of a religious
tradition. In a Religious Tradition Study, the particular focus is on the ways in which a religious tradition, as an integrated belief system, provides a distinctive answer to the enduring questions of human existence.
The study of a particular religious tradition enables students to demonstrate an appreciation of the diversity of expression within, and the underlying unity of the whole religious tradition. This study is essential preparation for the Religious Tradition Depth Studies in the HSC course.
