Mission Objectives

  • Our Program has four purposes:
  • To train research experts as well as professional practitioners in the field of applied ethics (e.g. ethics of science and engineering, research ethics, environmental ethics, bioethics and business ethics [these listings are not exhaustive]) .
  • To train research experts in the field of philosophy who are equipped with disciplines of applied ethics as well as general ethics.
  • To cultivate human resources who have interdisciplinary knowledge and research skills. We also encourage students to acquire these academic assets through literature-based, theoretical research.
