Ethics via distance learning

 

This program of ethics reviews the issues that involve systematizing, defending, and recommending the concepts of right and wrong behavior. Ethics is a system of moral principles practiced by a person or group of people concerned with what is good for individuals and society. It is also described as moral philosophy. While they're closely related concepts, morals refer mainly to guiding principles, and ethics refer to specific rules and actions, or behaviors. A moral precept is an idea or opinion that's driven by a desire to be good. An ethical code is a set of rules that defines allowable actions or correct behavior.

It also explores moral reasoning and how rigorous an ethical position can be applied to real-life experiences.

A moral precept is an idea or opinion that's driven by a desire to be good. An ethical code is a set of rules that defines allowable actions or correct behavior.

Academic Supervisor:

Technology Ethics
This course of technology ethics explores the application of ethical thinking to the practical concerns of the use of technology. New technologies give us more power to act, which means that we have to make choices we didn't have to make before. Some ethical dilemmas derived from technology are: digital addiction (many people are addicted to technology), breakdown of truth (it’s becoming harder to tell what’s real and what isn’t); ideological polarization; manipulation through persuasive technology, and many other mental and emotional issues derived from the excessive impact and dependency of the use of technology.
Academic Supervisor:

Peace Studies

Which are the practical means to build peaceful relationships? What are the key challenges and the peaceful alternatives facing humanity now and then? The wide range of human peace and conflict experiences and the complexity of interactions at both the local and the global levels make it very difficult to have single answers to these questions.
