Online Certificate in Animal Ethics

Animal ethics deals with the way we treat animals and discusses what is right and wrong. This discipline has been growing in later years and many people working with animals become more interested in learning about the subject.

Most of the specialists working with animals, however come from a science background and had little exposure to the principles of moral philosophy. This course is specific designed for those who coming from the life sciences want to learn the tools of moral reasoning before engaging in moral arguments about the status of animals.

The course introduces some basic principles of moral philosophy, how the concept of ethical behaviour has developed along history and how philosophers think about morality. These are the basic tools that enable us to engage on discussions of an moral natural and help us in the taking ethical decisions on issues where the interests of humans and animals are at stake.
