|AIM OF THE COURSE|
|On completion of the course, the student should be able to:
- account for a chosen speciality in ethics,

- search, interpret and critically review materials relevant for the examination of the issue,
- analyse, assess and discuss others' theses in ethics.
|An issue in the subject of ethics is examined independently, on the basis of the theory and method traditions of the discipline. The results are presented in writing and defended at a thesis seminar. The course also includes discussing other students' thesis plans and completed theses.|
|The independent thesis work is supported by supervision, introductory seminars, mid-way reviews and final thesis seminars. All students are expected to prepare for and participate in the seminars, in an active and constructive way. The students should also study independently.|
|The course is examined through compulsory seminars, where thesis plans are analysed and discussed, the student's own thesis is defended and, normally, a review of another thesis is carried out.
Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course two times are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.
Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.
