Masters of Philosophy in Ethics and Professionalism

A number of students have expressed an interest in enrolling in the Master of Philosophy in the Ethics and Professionalism domain.

The aim of the Master of Philosophy (MPhil) program is to provide research training in a manner that fosters the development of independent research skills in candidates. On completion of the period of research, the student should possess the ability to formulate a significant problem, mastery of appropriate conceptual and methodological frameworks, and the capacity for articulate and critical analysis. The MPhil thesis (approximately 40,000 words) provides evidence of significant research as the culmination of 1.5-2 years full-time equivalent study and research training.

For students enrolling in the program next year Sarah will be providing a number of supportive thesis preparation tutorials which will help you approach and structure your research topic, whether that is a theoretical exposition or an empirical, qualitative research project and analysis. Our expectation is that students will publish from their work as we proceed.
