Announcing launch of MSt in Practical Ethics

MSt in Practical Ethics

We are delighted to announce the MSt in Practical Ethics, which will open with its first cohort of students in October 2018. 

The MSt offers high quality training in practical ethics, drawing on the internationally recognised expertise of Oxford’s Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, the Ethox Centre and the Faculty of Philosophy.

This new course run by the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics in the Faculty of Philosophy, and the Department for Continuing Education, provides training in practical ethics through flexible, part-time learning. 

The course is highly interdisciplinary in character but the primary focus is ethical and philosophical. It focuses on the application of rigorous philosophical analysis to real-life ethical problems and provides a grounding in ethical concepts and methods, as well as in major debates in practical ethics. Students will also have the opportunity for in-depth research on a topic of their choice. The 6 course modules may be taken as part of the degree or as standalone courses: 

Ethical Concepts and Methods

Well-Being, Disability and Enhancement

Neuroethics

Philosophy, Psychiatry and Mental Health

Ethics of the Beginning and End of Life

Research Ethics and Empirical Ethics
