A master’s degree, typically a two- to three-year program, is an advanced tier of higher education and usually the bridge between a baccalaureate and a Ph.D. The master’s degree builds on previous studies through courses involving greater specificity and more precise application to a topic area.

What is a Master in Ethics? This degree program allows students to study philosophical questions that are fundamental to life in civil society. Ethics explores morality and the relationship between good and evil, and right and wrong. The study of ethics challenges students to consider how to respond with integrity to real-world situations that can be complex and morally ambiguous. Some examples include corporate social responsibility, beginning and end of life issues and animal rights. Technology, medicine, science and the environment are among the many areas for specialization in ethics.

A master’s degree in ethics can prepare students to analyze a situation and to evaluate choices. Qualities such as objectivity, judgment and rationality can be honed. Students can become proficient at understanding the “big picture,” as well as capturing complex details in business and life situations. The study of ethics may also develop students’ abilities to write and speak clearly.

The cost of obtaining a Master in Ethics should be comparable to the cost of other liberal arts master’s programs, but the overall price tag depends on what school you go to. For more information, research the institution you’re interested in attending.

Employment in the field of ethics can be wide-ranging. Graduates may find work as pharmaceutical compliance officers, or in a hospital or university as an institutional review board director or an ethics committee member. Positions in non-profit organizations and public administration are also possibilities. Students who love learning for its own sake may pursue an academic career and continue on to earn a Ph.D. Those who enjoy writing and communications could consider becoming journalists. A master’s degree in ethics could also be initial preparation for lawyers or political figures.

Most liberal arts colleges and universities offer a master’s degree in ethics, and these degree programs are also available online. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
