The study of Ethics provides an excellent grounding in evaluative theory and reasoning for a professional future in the public service, the health sector, social work, with environmental agencies, and in business. Students gain the tools and capabilities they need to become inspirational leaders in their communities and in their working lives, enabling them to feel confident in their capability to reflect on doing 'the right thing' and following through on that reflection.
Ethics may be taken as a minor.
To complete a minor in Ethics, students must complete 60 points from PHILO106, PHILO215, PHILO217, PHILO218, PHILO225, PHILO309 and PHILO315, including at least 30 points above 100 level.
Note: There will be no new enrolments in the Ethics major, Graduate Certificate, or Graduate Diploma in 2018. Students enrolled in 2016 or previously should consult the Faculty of Arts and Social Science Office for programme advice.
