M.A.L.S. - Ethics and Values
JD/MALS - Ethics and Values
The MALS concentration in Ethics & Values is intended for professionals in a variety of fields who could benefit from an understanding of and sensitivity to issues of ethics and values. The program enables students to develop the framework necessary for making informed, values-based decisions in fields such as law, ministry, health care, business and human services.
The 32-33 credit program--which is most easily completed through a combination of evening and day study--is made up of core requirements in liberal studies, concentrated study in ethics, and a capstone integrative project. The program is one of several at Valparaiso University that reflect the institution's longstanding commitment to promoting the highest standards of personal and professional behavior not just among students, but within the community, church, and larger society. While most coursework must be completed in residence, permission may be granted for up to 6 credits of off-campus study.
