  1. Background

The civics and ethical studies, among others, aims basically to make moral education which is the engine and forceful tool for the cultivation of social and moral values and develop fundamental codes and principles of professional ethics. However, there are a number of factors that hinder the realization of these values efficiently and effectively. Among them, the most crucial factor is lack of trained professionals and teachers of civics and ethical studies who are professionally and academically qualified, competent, well informed and responsible graduates. Though most preparatory and high school civics and ethics teachers might have some training they require to upgrade and to have in-depth capture of the concepts.

The need for increase the sensitivity of the Ethiopian society for saving, industriousness, self-reliance and active participants in the democratization process and formation of good governance as well as to disseminate the fundamental issues of the very subject matter of civics and ethics calls for having well trained professionals.

It was, however, found out, even at the beginning, that the greater challenge to effectively deal with the teaching of Civic and Ethical Education courses was the lack of teachers who are trained in the discipline itself. Individuals with differing educational backgrounds were and are still teaching Civic and Ethical Education at different levels; some of them even are graduates of Natural Sciences and Computational Science disciplines which have virtually no either vertical and/ or horizontal relation with the subject matter of Civic and ethical Education.

Therefore, the general objective of this program is to produce experts of Civic and Ethics who are professionally and academically qualified. These professionals would also play essential role in shaping the attitude and behavior of society effectively and efficiently through engaging community awareness, serving governmental and nongovernmental organization in the field of ethics, anti-corruption, and developmental agents. They also contribute in fighting social evils and teach students as well as the community about those values highly cherished by the Ethiopian society due to their strong relevance for national as well as world peace and development. In short to provide the widest needs of the national market with graduates who have a good knowledge and competence in the vast area of Civic and Ethical Studies; who have developed a remarkable degree of civic capacity and moral standards so that they could play an exemplary role for the realization of sustainable development. The department of civics and ethical studies has been launched in Salale University in 2011 E.C. under the College of Social Science and Humanities. Currently the department has one (1) BA program in both weekend and regular program. In advance, in 2013 E.C the department launched two (1) MA program in MA in civics and ethical studies and governance and development studies. The total number of students under the department is 269.
