Certificate in Practical and Interdisciplinary Ethics
The undergraduate certificate in practical and interdisciplinary ethics provides students the opportunity to identify a concentration in the study of ethics. The program allows students to analyze the moral issues that arise in various disciplines, fields, and professions, and sharpens their analytical skills by providing them with a solid foundation in ethical theory. The certificate program is open to any Webster University student, as well as to individuals not currently enrolled who meet the general requirements for admission to the University.
The certificate program is administered by the Director of the Center for Ethics and requires a 3-credit-hour core course, plus 15 credit hours chosen from the courses listed. A maximum of 12 credit hours may be taken within a departmental prefix.
Students are also encouraged to engage in some appropriate practical experience. Up to 3 credit hours earned in this manner may be substituted for coursework; the Director must approve substituted credit hours. Students will register their work either through the Individualized Learning Experiences program (INDZ) or PHIL 4400 (Practicum in Philosophy).
