Study type Taught


As a global population, we face pressing ethical challenges and problems: for example, climate change, public health, freedom of expression, religious freedom, reparations, global justice, the value of democracy, immigration, and terrorism. The MA Global Ethical Challenges enables you to think through these challenges rigorously and consider potential solutions in depth by analysing current policies and ways of thinking.

This postgraduate course is designed to appeal to you if you have an interest in the ethical challenges affecting us globally, or perhaps if you're thinking of undertaking PhD work in moral philosophy, political philosophy, and political and social theory with an international slant. It is also a great foundation if you have ambitions to enter international policy fields and related careers.

Our staff are active researchers in their fields and you’ll be part of a stimulating environment based around our research centres.

You’ll find plenty of resources at Leeds to inspire and inform your studies. The Special Collections housed in our Brotherton Library include extensive collections of archive and early printed material, and you’ll also have access to a wide range of journals, recordings, books and digital resources to assist you during your course.

This course is also available to study part-time over 24 months.
