The new MA programme in Ethics and International Affairs is a one-year, full-time programme that offers specialised graduate training in political theory with a focus on the global dimension. Many of today's real-world challenges, such as climate change, poverty, inequality, transitional exploitation, are no longer confined to the boundaries of nation-states and raise distinct moral concerns. The programme equips students with the analytical tools for understanding and addressing the ethical dimensions of these issues.
The core modules give students a solid foundation in contemporary political theory, especially theories of justice, both domestic and global. The students have a wide range of optional modules to choose from, including further political theory modules as well as modules in the area of development, international relations or international political economy, allowing them to pursue specific interests.
