Our undergraduate teaching is designed for students from a range of disciplines. Students have the opportunity to discuss and analyse ethical issues with practical relevance outside of philosophy. 

This teaching provides the development of critical analysis, reasoning and argument, and clarity of expression, all of which are sought after by academic bodies and employers.

Discovery Theme Modules

The IDEA Centre run two 10 credit Discovery Theme Modules:-

IDEA1000 Professional Ethics: Challenges and Crises - for students interested in examining some of the ethical challenges in professional life.

IDEA2000 Leadership Ethics - for students who wish to develop their understanding of the practical ethical challenges of leadership.

Intercalated BA Biomedical & Health Care Ethics

Our BA Biomedical & Health Care Ethics is offered to UK medical and dentistry students who have the option of intercalating during their programme of study. The course aims to provide a thorough grounding in ethics and bioethics, applied to medical practice and health policy.

Our Biomedical & Health Care Ethics programme is also available as an Intercalated MA programme. Please see the Postgraduate page for more information.

Inter-Disciplinary Ethics Teaching

A central part of the Centre's activity is to develop and deliver inter-disciplinary applied ethics teaching across the University of Leeds. We work in partnership with academics across the University of Leeds to teach inter-disciplinary ethics within programmes of study.

Our aim is teach applied ethics in a way that is relevant to students, regardless of their discipline. We work closely with professionals, academics, and students themselves to make sure that our teaching is appropriate and meaningful.
