New MA Track in Applied Ethics and Multimedia

The Department of Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University announces a new
track in its MA Program.

The track in Applied Ethics and Multimedia provides students with the
opportunity to combine the study of applied ethics with the exploration of
issues in multimedia authoring. Special courses include "Issues in
Multimedia Authoring" and "Designing Interactive Multimedia". Students in
this track can study the theoretical and pedagogical relationships between
form and content that bring these initially diverse spheres together. They
will also have the opportunity to use the advanced multimedia computing
facilities of the campus to develop hands-on authoring skills.

The Center for the Advancement of Applied Ethics at Carnegie Mellon
University is a research and development environment that focuses on
teaching people practical methods for analyzing and responding to real
ethical problems. The Center's members combine knowledge and experience
from different areas including interactive multimedia, business and
professional ethics, and conflict resolution.

Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate some programming and/or
design skills.

Online application forms can be found on the Philosophy Department's
HomePage: hss.cmu.edu/HTML/departments/philosophy/philosophy.html
