  • Program requirements

The Faculty of Philosophy at Saint Paul University, in collaboration with the Faculties of Theology and of Human Sciences, offers a Graduate Diploma in Public Ethics. The graduate diploma is granted jointly by the Senates of Saint Paul University and the University of Ottawa under the terms of the federation agreement between them.

The program is based on course and seminar work in public ethics and is especially attractive to mid-career professionals wishing to reflect and build on their professional experience and previous studies.

Program Objectives

To provide academic training in public ethics and foster the development of analytical skills enabling professionals (e.g., managers, political analysts, consultants, parliamentary assistants, jurists, health care professionals, administrators of agencies, information specialists) to articulate coherently the contents of an ethical debate and to clarify issues that may arise, with the aim of shaping discussions and policies at the regional, national and international levels.
