About this course

This masters course interrogates the traditional approaches to and boundaries of ethics with a focus on the application and practice of moral philosophy.

While you will be grounded in the School of Humanities, you will also have the opportunity to branch out to other departments across the University of Brighton according to your chosen specialism, so you can learn how to apply ethical principles to your chosen professional domain.

Since students on the programme come from various backgrounds, you will benefit from being part of an interdisciplinary cohort that can contribute different perspectives. Our staff have a range of academic interests themselves, but are connected by a belief in the practical application of the philosophy of right and wrong.

Entry Requirements

Degree and/or experience:

Prior learning will also be accredited as appropriate.

English Language Requirement:

  • IELTS 7.0 overall and 6.5 in writing.


  • You will normally be interviewed so that we can assess your potential to study at masters level.
