The Diploma helps to prepare students for the ethical challenges of various professions and for work as ethical consultants and analysts in government and private institutions (e.g., hospitals, businesses, environmental agencies).
The Diploma in Applied Ethics is in the process of renewal and applications are not being taken for the academic year 2016-17. Students who are already enrolled in the Diploma should contact the Program Coordinator for advice about completing the program.
The Diploma consists of 24 credit hours, including an Instructional Field Placement. A concentration in either bioethics, mental health ethics, or environmental ethics is required: courses toward a concentration must be chosen with the approval of the Program Coordinator.
