n the last years, the world has been witnessing a succession of events resulting from misconduct by various decision-makers. This awareness has led schools to adopt in their curricula subjects with content in the area of ethics and similar. With the present research, on the one hand, it was tried to verify whether the teaching of ethics is present as a discipline in the courses taught in institutions of higher education. On the other hand, it is also intended to verify the expressiveness of he discipline of ethics in the curricula of the courses, in comparison with other disciplines that are taught in those courses. The present study focused on a Portuguese higher education institution, and the data collection was carried out with resources to the technique of content analysis. The results allow us to infer that the expressiveness of the teaching of ethics is reduced, being the teaching of the discipline, within each course, oriented to the area of professional ethics.

W ostatnich latach jesteśmy świadkami sekwencji zdarzeń wynikających z nieprawidłowego postępowania rozmaitych decydentów. Świadomość ta doprowadziła do tego, że szkoły uwzględniły w swoich programach nauczania przedmioty zawierające treści z zakresu etyki i jej podobne. W niniejszym badaniu podjęto próbę weryfikacji, czy nauczanie etyki jako dyscypliny obecne jest na kursach prowadzonych w instytucjach szkolnictwa wyższego. Jednocześnie ma ono na celu weryfikację wyrazistości dyscypliny, jaką jest etyka, w programach nauczania kursów w porównaniu z innymi dyscyplinami nauczanymi w trakcie tych kursów. Niniejsza praca skoncentrowała się na portugalskiej instytucji szkolnictwa wyższego, gromadzenie zaś danych zostało przeprowadzone z użyciem zasobów do analizy treści. Wyniki pozwalają wnioskować, że wyrazistość nauczania etyki jest ograniczona, będąc nauczaniem dyscypliny zorientowanym w ramach każdego kursu na obszar etyki zawodowej.
