New A Level opportunities at Barnsley Sixth Form College

Barnsley Sixth Form College will be offering four new A Level subjects from September 2016. Fine Art, Graphic Communication, Government and Politics, and Religion, Philosophy and Ethics.

Those studying Fine Art will be introduced to a variety of experiences that explore a range of processes and techniques. They will be made aware of both traditional and new media and they will explore the use of drawing for different purposes, using a variety of methods.

For students who prefer a more design based qualification, the A Level in Graphic Communication will be more suited. Students will be introduced to methods such as design for print, illustration, branding and interactive media.

Government and Politics will focus on subjects such as People, Politics and Participation and Governing Modern Britain. In the second year options include Politics of the USA and Ideologies in action.

In A Level Religion, Philosophy and Ethics students will explore life’s ‘big questions’ and study Christian theology, philosophy, metaphysical questions and ethical theories which will inquire into the nature of human morality.
