Structure of the Studies

The basic studies in Ethics (26 ECTS) are comprised of study units that are common to all students. In the intermediate studies, the students compile their study module from the available study units in the following sections:

  • Seminar on Basic Concepts of Teaching Ethics (5 ECTS)
  • Philosophical studies (10 ECTS)
  • Sociological studies (10 ECTS)
  • Cultural and/or religious studies (10 ECTS)

If, as a part of their other studies, the students have previously completed a study unit belonging to the basic studies, they can apply for substitution by using the Application for Credit Transfer which will be returned to the teacher in charge.
