About

Overview

Program Description

The department offers both theoretical and applied courses, as well as internships with regional businesses and organizations to provide students with a comprehensive, normative, politically-informed and logically consistent training in order to face new challenges encountered in business, medical associations, national and international political contexts, as well as public education.

A Graduate Certificate or Master of Arts in Applied Philosophy, particularly applied ethics, is an excellent credential for a wide variety of professionals.
