The Environmental Ethics programme at the University of Malta demonstrates the multiple complex issues that need to be considered when reflecting on such a vast, contentious and multifaceted reality of how to be a responsible citizen in an ever more fragile and complexly interconnected human environment.

You will be able to explain how political, economic, social, educational, legal, scientific, artistic and technical “languages” and approaches are necessary for a correct analysis of the complex systemic reality that we live in, as well as to promote the necessary ingenuity and wisdom that it demands for integral flourishing. 

The Environmental Ethics programme at the University of Malta  will teach you how to analyse the issues systemically and demonstrate an ability to present them coherently through deliberation by bringing different “languages” and disciplines together. The nature of the programme clearly draws on several core transferable skills like critical reading and reflection, narrative approaches, and the ability to reason ethically as well as creatively.
