Department profile

Founded in 1999, the Department of Ethics and Applied Ethics is the first department of its kind in Slovakia. It primarily focuses on coordinating the Applied Ethics study programme at the bachelor's (Bc.), master's (Mgr.) and doctoral (PhD) levels, in both day and external forms.

This course of study shapes students by broadening their humanistic and social knowledge, teaching them how to manage dilemmas of social integrity and master social management techniques, as well as providing them with an understanding of the ethics of organizations and everyday life.

The goal of such an education is to train professionals to implement ethics in various areas and prepare them both academically and professionally in the field of applied ethics, including organizational ethics, bioethics, environmental ethics, animal ethics, business and management ethics, science and technology ethics, new media ethics, occupational ethics, public administration ethics, military ethics, sports ethics, professional ethics (the ethics of teaching, medicine, nursing, law enforcement, law, etc.). It is particularly important to us that our students acquire skills indispensable to ethical expertise and learn how to create ethical codes in various types of organizations.

Our graduates' proven professional success is one of the greatest achievements of the department. Our students regularly participate in fellowships at renowned research institutions specializing in applied ethics in the USA, Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, the Netherlands and Poland. The results of their research have also been successfully implemented in practice.

The department also includes the Division of Applied Ethics and the Ethical Consultancy Centre, which expand the educational, consulting and advisory activities of the department itself. They also coordinate specific practical tasks connected with the implementation of ethics in practice.

In both research and education, the department cooperates with Forschungscentrer Karlsruhe (Germany), the University of Salzburg (Austria), the Institute of Philosophy at the University of Silesia (Poland), various institutions and professionals in the Czech Republic, the Institute of Philosophy at the Slovak Academy of Sciences, and other universities in the Slovak Republic, as well as with renowned institutions concerned with social management in central Slovakia.
