Center for Ethics Education and Center on Religion and Culture.

Fordham University Center for Ethics Education

The Fordham University Center for Ethics Education was established 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 cultural 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 all members of the human family.

In this era of increased need for ethical discourse in academic, professional, and public spheres, Center activities draw upon theological, philosophical, scientific and other areas of inquiry to foster interdisciplinary dialogue and scholarship on moral values and ethics issues of contemporary social import. The Center embodies the University's commitment to intellectual excellence by offering educational and research opportunities and public programming enriched through moral values, religious concerns, scientific and scholarly study, and active engagement in creating a caring and just world.

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.

Fordham University Center on Religion and Culture

The Fordham Center on Religion and Culture, established in fall 2004, seeks to explore questions arising at the intersection of religious faith and contemporary culture. At a time when the influence of religion in U.S. public life is both recognized and contested, the Center will foster conversations about the issues today’s culture raises for religious belief and institutions, and the challenges posed by religion to the culture. Strategically located at Fordham’s Lincoln Center campus, the Center will draw on New York City’s leading role in intellectual and literary life, media, the visual and performing arts, and diplomatic and humanitarian activities, as well as on the city’s unusual cultural and religious diversity.
