Link to program

The course consists of:
7 track-specific courses of 21 ECTS in total:
Bioethics, Technology and the Body (3 ECTS)
Justice and Inequality (3 ECTS)
Migration, Refugees and Human Rights (3 ECTS)
Science and Public Policy (3 ECTS)
Terrorism and Security (3 ECTS)
Populism and Active Citizenship (3 ECTS)
Sustainability and Environmental Ethics (3 ECTS)

3 Common courses
Ethics (6 ECTS)
Political Philosophy (6 ECTS)
Enlightenment and counterenlightenment (6 ECTS)

Of course, the usefulness depends largely on what your goals are. Let’s say that one would want to look at something different than the academic philosophy career path.
For me, I would love to combine this knowledge with my Bsc in economics and my interest in (the consequences of) AI & Biotechnology development for society.

As I won’t be taking it, I have no idea. What do you think?

Please introduce yourself. Your link shows me a blank page.

Sounds interesting to me, but I’m on a medical ethics committee, so it would.
