The Ethikum is an additional qualification to the Bachelor's or Master's degree, which proves that you have thought outside the box during your studies and have dealt intensively with the topics of ethics and/or sustainable development.
All students at universities of applied sciences in Baden-Württemberg.
In the ethics course, one does not calculate with credit points as is usually the case in studies, but with ethics points (EP). 1 CP corresponds to 15 EP.
Creditable are ....
The courses must have a clear thematic reference (ethics/sustainability). It has already been agreed with some subjects what is recognised as standard for the Ethikum. If you want to have a compulsory course credited, your lecturer must provide an exact percentage of the ethical or sustainable part of your work. Your ethics points will be calculated from this percentage. In total, only 30 ethics points from compulsory courses can be credited.
For pure attendance, which you confirm on the attendance list, you will receive 1 EP. In addition, it is possible to submit a written elaboration on the lecture topic, where 1 page = 1 ethics point (e.g. attendance and 3 pages of elaboration = 4 ethics points). This is possible up to a maximum of 15 ethics points (15 ethics points = attendance and 14 pages of elaboration).
Courses with a purely didactic content (e.g. "Learning to learn", "How do I give good presentations?",...) or language courses are not credited.
