Certificate in Applied & Professional Ethics
This program is under review. Please note that no new students will be accepted into this program in 2017-18. Students already accepted to this certificate program will be allowed to complete the program. Please consult with the Department of Philosophy and/or the Undergraduate Student Office for more information.
The Certificate in Applied & Professional Ethics (APE) provides students with opportunities for substantive philosophical study in some of the main areas of applied and professional ethics, including bioethics, environmental ethics, business ethics, and ethics in technology and scientific research. In addition, the program provides for focused study in a specific research area that reflects students’ interests in the subject. The program will familiarize students with the ethical theories and principles that inform the sub-disciplines of applied ethics, provide an overview of specific ethical issues in the contemporary world, and provide opportunities for examination of and critical reflection on the relationships between applied ethics and other domains, such as law, public policy, and professional codes of conduct.
It is expected that the program will be particularly useful for students whose professional career or post-degree research involves issues related to applied and professional ethics, especially those who wish to establish basic qualifications in the subject area without undertaking a 3 or 4 year degree program.
