What to Expect
Start your program with a variety of philosophy courses, ranging from ethics and public policy to war and morality to military conflicts. In addition to your core courses, you’ll choose a concentration that will be driven by your choice of electives, taking courses through both our College of Arts and Sciences and our School of Law. Depending on what you choose, this degree can be a stepping stone for a PhD, used as a precursor to law school, or stand alone.
Guest speakers and instructors—including active duty and retired international military members—join Case Western Reserve’s faculty experts each semester to give you a worldwide perspective on military ethics. This program was created in partnership with the Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence, which advocates for an international and interdisciplinary understanding of the importance of ethics. So from the coursework to the speakers, you know your pursuit of this degree is for the greater good.
