Students are introduced to a range of theories of ethics and central moral notions, including autonomy, justice, utility and sympathy. This theory is deployed in the interpretation and analysis of professional life. Students are introduced to the notion of a moral dilemma, and, more generally, the way in which theoretical notions can inform concrete ethical decision-making.
