- understand the critical issues bearing on an aspect of professional or applied ethics in some depth;
- evaluate critically and in detail some of the main theoretical approaches to a particular issue in professional or applied ethics;
- apply this understanding to the thoughtful development of a line of argument regarding an issue in professional or applied ethics, which reflects their own critical engagement with the material studied.
