Dip.- Moral Sciences

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The program in the moral sciences shares some characteristics with the studies in philosophy. However, more stress in laid on ethics, and the students will have to take courses in the human sciences like e.g. psychology, sociology, economics etc. During the first year of study the student in the moral sciences has to follow some general courses together with all the other students of the faculty. In addition to the development of personal critical researching and thinking -- culminating in the final dissertation -- the student in the moral sciences will also be trained so as to be able to give courses in non-confessional ethics in secondary schools.
