Religious Education




 

Junior Cycle - Religious Education

Subject Group: Social
These subjects explore common issues faced by all people living in society. They develop the skills and knowledge used to manage personal resources and guide human behaviour.

Brief Description:

In Religious Education (RE) you will learn about what people believe, why they believe and how these beliefs influence their own lives, the lives of others and the world around us. You will explore how many religions, particularly Christian religions, have shaped the Ireland you live in today.


How will Religious Education be useful to me?

RE will be useful to you in:

  • helping you understand how people make decisions, how people are inspired by their religious beliefs, how conflict happens and how it can be solved
  • helping you solve problems and thinking for yourself when working with others
  • planning to travel to or live in other countries.

You can also continue studying RE as part of some courses and degrees when you leave school.



Note: A new specification for Junior Cycle Religious Education will be introduced for first year students from September 2019 and assessed in 2022 for the first time.
