Ethical concerns are central in all fields of activity, especially in business, every day life, politics and science. Applied Global Ethics is an outward-facing, forward-looking research field. It challenges and inspires you to explore academic theories across disciplinary boundaries and national borders. Combining an in-depth focus on theories with a programme of research methods and practical project management, it’s designed to enable you to develop as an independent research professional.
Studying in the Faculty of Business, Law and Politics, and in conjunction with the Institute of Applied Ethics, you’ll benefit from teaching and research by experts from a wide range of disciplines. We have expertise in philosophy, politics, international relations and war studies, business studies, logistics, management studies, and marketing – to name a few. This wide range of expertise provides the right environment to apply the theoretical study of ethics to a global, real-world context.
