The Master's programme in Applied Ethics focuses on the interaction between moral practice and ethical theory. Graduates will have a thorough knowledge of a number of ethical theories, be familiar with important methods and debates in applied ethics, and be aware of the implications of legal and political frameworks for ethical argumentation. These areas are studied in the context of several fields of applied ethics, notably bioethics, animal and environmental ethics, and politics.
You will learn about the various ways in which the analysis of concrete problems leads to theoretical philosophical questions, and vice versa. This interaction is key to in-depth ethical reflection. The programme is interdisciplinary: in addition to learning about philosophy, you will learn about the contexts in which moral problems arise, and the different types of analysis that may be needed in different contexts. You will also experience how viewpoints from different disciplines can strengthen ethical reflection and moral argumentation.
