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 medical, animal and environmental, and political ethics. In cooperation with Linköping University and Norwegian University Science and Technology (Trondheim), this Master's is also offered as an Erasmus Mundus programme. Erasmus Mundus students study at two of these three universities and receive a double degree upon completion of the programme. Programme application is possible via Erasmus Mundus Master's of Applied Ethics consortium website. Non-European students can apply for full Erasmus Mundus scholarships.
