The course is primarily intended for students of the study tracks in social psychology and social work. Depending on the available student places, students of other tracks will be admitted in order of registration.

Students will learn to identify and evaluate their own attitudes and values, as well as those of the work community, in addition to which they will be able to produce related discourse. They will learn to solve ethical problems and justify the solutions with ethical principles and scientific knowledge.

Students will familiarise themselves with research in social psychology concerned with the decision-making and activities of professional ethics, as well as with theories of social ethics and topical discourse. They will practice solving ethical problems and argumentation in group discussions. The discussions will deal with actual problems found in professional contexts. The course is suitable for Master’s degree students with work experience.
