About this Master's
This Practical Ethics course at the University of Oxford is run jointly by the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics in the Faculty of Philosophy, and the Department for Continuing Education, and draws on the internationally recognised expertise of the Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, the Ethox Centre and the Faculty of Philosophy.
The course is highly interdisciplinary in character but the primary focus is ethical and philosophical: students will learn how to apply rigorous philosophical analysis to real-life ethical problems and will be provided with a grounding in key 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 course is relevant to students from a range of professional backgrounds, including medicine and other health sciences, cognitive science, philosophy, bioethics and the legal and public policy sectors.
