Center for Ethics Education

The Fordham University Center for Ethics Education was created in 1999 to contribute to Fordham’s commitment to cultivating lifelong habits of critical thinking, moral reflection and articulate expression. Drawing upon the Jesuit traditions of sapientia et doctrina (wisdom and learning) and homines pro aliis (men and women for others) and the rich human diversity of New York City, the Center sponsors activities that provide students, faculty, professionals and the public with knowledge and skills to study, inform and shape a just society that nurtures the full-flourishing of peoples of diverse faiths and cultures. Affirming the complementary roles of faith and reason, the Center draws upon theology, philosophy, social and physical science, law, business and other fields to provide the multidisciplinary education necessary to advance the common good.

The Center currently offers two degree-granting programs:

Master of Arts in Ethics and Society. The Master of Arts in Ethics and Society provides students with a cross-disciplinary foundation in the application of moral and ethical theory to social issues.

Graduate Certificate in Health Care Ethics. The Fordham University Advanced Certificate in Health Care Ethics is designed to enhance the student’s understanding of and participation in discourse regarding ethically-relevant policy decisions affecting mental and physical health care treatment and research.
