Ethics is a discipline that studies and analyzes human behaviour, people's values and their way of acting and being while considering the society in which they live. Ethics attempts to answer the questions "How do we live well?" and "How can we act properly?"

Offered by the Faculty of Philosophy, these programs in Ethics and in Philosophy allow students to understand the key ethical issues of our modern society along with ethical questions that arise in fields such as religion, politics, health, business, communications, justice, the environment, public affairs, etc. With the help of major ethical theories, students can analyze these issues to reveal primary values and clashes over values and thus be able to propose possible solutions to resolve these ethical dilemmas.
