INTRO TO ETHICS (4CR) (CUL-222244)

Center for Distance Learning Home > Distance Learning Catalog > Communications Humanities and Cultural Studies >

Course Description:


This course provides an opportunity for students to study ethics. The course is based on discussion of some common reading followed by learning activities planned by students themselves. The purpose of the course is to help students practice reasoning about ethics from a variety of perspectives and across a range of contexts. Each student will have the opportunity to shape his or her learning activities in ways that speak to his or her own reasons for taking the course--be they an interest in the discipline of philosophy, general learning to support a professionally-oriented degree, concern for the common good, sheer wonder, or just about anything else.

Note: Students should not take both the 4-credit and the 2-credit courses titled Introduction to Ethics as these overlap.

This course fully meets the General Education requirement in Humanities.


This online course is offered through the Center for Distance Learning.
