Case Western Adds First M.A. in Military Ethics

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Case Western Reserve University has established the nation’s first graduate program in military ethics.

The Master of Arts in Military Ethics program formalizes a field of study that contends with questions of how advancing military technologies relate to the common humanity of both enemy and ally, the university said.

While the study of military ethics has long supported humanitarian goals, such as preventing unjust wars, war crimes, and other atrocities, students in the program will be trained in emerging areas of ethical consideration, such as cyberwarfare, human enhancement, and the use of new weaponry, including drones.
