This part-time taught Masters programme explores Contemporary Ethics.
In an increasingly globalised world we are confronted with complex questions about identity, human rights, and the role of religion in the pubic sphere. This Masters programme provides a comprehensive analysis of current ethical issues in a dynamic learning environment. It offers students an understanding of the evolving relationship between Church and State within modern societies, and its implications for the content of civil legislation and for the role of Catholic politicians. Students will also explore contemporary trends in globalization, issues in healthcare ethics, social justice and human rights concerns, as well as the ethics of media relations.
