Course summary

Our Global Ethics and Human Values MA is the most wide-ranging and philosophical course in its field, allowing you to study the most pressing ethical issues of our time, from globalisation and climate change to war, terrorism, poverty, inequality, justice and human rights.

Key benefits:

  • A wide-ranging programme covering challenging contemporary philosophical topics and urgent ethical issues.
  • Taught by distinguished academic staff whose areas of expertise include a very wide range of topics in ethics and political philosophy.
  • Based in the heart of London, close to the Houses of Parliament, the Royal Courts of Justice, multinational corporate headquarters and international NGOs.
  • Open to students from law, the humanities and social sciences as well as those with relevant work experience.
  • Generous scholarships are available to support the brightest and best students.


Our Global Ethics & Human Values course will encourage and develop your thinking about the complex theoretical and practical issues confronting the world and equip you with the analytical skills to address those issues with philosophical rigour. It draws extensively on branches of philosophy, politics and international relations and will introduce you to a wide range of ideas, concepts and problems within those areas.

You will examine theoretical perspectives within ethics, such as deontology, consequentialism and virtue and explore how these perspectives can be used to understand important and emotive issues such as religious and political conflict, nationalism, abortion and sexual perversion. You will also study the works and insights of major political philosophers to consider how concepts such as liberty or equality have been interpreted to shape the world we live in.

Career prospects:

Our course has broadened students’ awareness of global issues. Many of our graduates have gone on to do research degrees and work for governmental and non-governmental organisations.
