A Master in Ethics explores the multidisciplinary process and study of seeking answers to deep philosophical questions and concepts of good and evil, right and wrong, virtue and vice, justice, and the like. Major branches of Ethics include Applied Ethics, Moral Psychology, Descriptive Ethics and Meta-ethics, all of which can be explored in a Master in Ethics program.
Even though researching those deep ethical concepts and origin of moral values may be very engaging, modern life of digital culture and complicated social structure demands assistance of applied ethics. With a Master in Ethics, students will examine this branch of philosophy that looks for ways to apply ethical theory to real-life situations. For example, it results in appearance of many specialized fields, such as Business Ethics, Bioethics and Engineering Ethics, that deal with contemporary moral challenges of new technology and public policies.
A Master in Ethics and, more specifically, in Applied Ethics, prepares a professional, whose responsibility it is to monitor the current challenges and controversies of the rapidly developing world and keep peace in balance. If you feel ready for such a challenging and responsible profession, don’t hesitate to find out more.
