1 PhD Programs in Applied Ethics 2023


Applied ethics is the study of moral decisions within a public or private framework. It is also a branch of philosophy that deals with how organizations answer moral questions and the results of those answers. Some subfields include legal ethics, environmental ethics and bioethics.

The PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) is a doctoral or post-graduate degree. PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy), and PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways. To receive a PhD a student must demonstrate original research in their chosen field of study, produce a dissertation on that research, and defend their dissertation in front of other experts.
