Applications for the bilingual curriculum must be postmarked from April 3, 2017 to June 26, 2017. The Admissions Committee will meet on June 3 and June 30, 2017.

Candidates for admission to M1 must hold a "Licence" (Bachelor of Arts or Sciences) degree. Candidates without a university degree may be able to substitute their personal and/or professional experience to qualify for the program. These candidates should provide evidence of such experience in their application.

The application should contain

  • a letter of motivation describing your interest in ethics and your research goals,
  • copies of relevant diplomas
  • certificate with your English Language Level (C1 is required)
  • certificate with your French Language Level (C1 is required)
  • any other information useful to the admissions committee 
  • The admissions committee will evaluate all applications on the basis of the information furnished by the candidate.

Can I enter directly into the second year of the Masters in Ethics?

Although it is possible to enter the second year of the Masters in Ethics, this is quite rare. The first year provides for basic training, which we we have found essential for students to fully benefit from the course. However, if you have already validated one or another module or course in any way, this needs to be signaled to us; your eventual academic advisor will be able to excuse you from classes at the beginning of the year. This will somewhat lighten your workload during your first year.

Registration fees

Registration fees are 261.10 euros per year for the two year Masters program.
If you are already enrolled in another course (law, sociology...), the registration fees for the second program are only 168.00 euros (To be eligible for this reduction, you must be registered for 2 courses on University of Strasbourg).


The European Centre for Study and Teaching of Ethics (CEERE) has begun in January 2007, English courses in its Master's program, Life, Norms and Society. This is a new challenge and a huge opportunity for this Master of Ethics degree, created in 2005, and accredited by the University of Strasbourg.

In collaboration with many public and private laboratories, CEERE gives high quality training in ethics to students and professionals in a variety of disciplines, enabling them to keep pace with the scientific, economic, social, cultural and technical challenges of contemporary society. And we hope, by this means, to encourage international exchanges between researchers and students.

It is indeed a new opportunity which can improve this high quality: it welcomes students from all over the world in giving the basic courses of the first spring term in English; but it sets also the hearts on the French language so that students will then be able to go on with French courses. Ethics is certainly a question of culture. And we want both: welcoming students with English courses, and giving them the opportunity to immerse themselves in French culture.

We want our students to go abroad, to be welcomed where they are going and to improve these rich exchanges which can help each one to become more human. Is this not the highest challenge of Ethics?
