Are whistle blowers heroes? Should terminal patients in grave pain have the right to die, and should medical practitioners have the right or duty to assist them in doing so? Do we betray our citizens when we outsource jobs? Is torture ever justiﬁed? When should the government be allowed to monitor our email exchanges? More generally, what place is there for morality in a proﬁt-driven environment? How do we strike a balance between keeping ourselves safe and preserving basic democratic principles? The corporate world, rapidly developing technology, globalization, and the changing nature of warfare, to name but a few developments, raise new and complicated moral concerns.
Suffolk’s Master of Science in Ethics and Public Policy trains leaders, executives, professionals, and scholars to identify and think through these complex issues. Combining courses in philosophy, government, public administration, and business, this degree provides students with a practical set of tools to understand not only how policy is made, but also what kinds of ethical choices are involved in its formation.
