MA in Applied Ethics
The MA in applied ethics program offers a complementary education on master’s level in applied ethics for students already holding a bachelor’s degree in different academic fields, from philosophy to health and technology, or a professional degree. The aim of the ethics program is to offer students the opportunity to pursue advanced studies in applied ethics.
Applied ethics is a growing interdisciplinary field that studies ethical issues in different areas such as politics, medicine, research, technology, as well as different forms of professional ethics. Questions such as global justice, ethical implications of new technologies in healthcare and environmental responsibility for future generations are some of the issues that applied ethics is dealing with.
The subject has its disciplinary basis in moral philosophy and ethics but also requires area knowledge and expertise in different fields of application.
