4TU.Ethics Ph.D. Graduate School Programme

Robust Training for Aspiring Researchers

PhD students who are working in one of the 4 philosophy departments of the 4TUs are invited to become members of the 4TU.Ethics Graduate School for the duration of their studies. The 4TU.Ethics Graduate School aims to provide an excellent research-oriented education for its PhD students, and recognizes that they have varying needs (given the diversity of research projects in the Centre) and also often face additional educational requirements (by their local graduate schools).  Hence we aim to provide an educational program that is flexible in terms of content and limited in size while providing robust training for aspiring researchers and professionals in the ethics of technology.

Becoming a member

To become a member of the 4TU.Centre for Ethics and Technology a PhD student needs to take both core courses, CC1 Philosophies of Technology and CC2 Writing retreat. The writing retreat needs to be taken twice. In addition, the student needs to take at least one of the listed courses (LC). You can find the full overview below.
