PHIL 234 - Topics in Applied Ethics

FC ARHU
4 credits
In this course, we’ll examine ethical issues that bear on your life as a college student. For example, is it morally permissible to use cognitive-enhancing drugs to gain an extra edge on your coursework? If there is a speaker you oppose, should you engage in disruptive protest? Should you support calls for the college to take political positions, or should a college be politically neutral? To what extent, if at all, should colleges implement affirmative action in admissions and hiring? Through your reading, writing, reflecting, and discussing, you’ll become more adept at thinking through these and other issues in the ethics of college life.
Prerequisites & Notes: One course in Philosophy. This course may count toward the major in Law and Society.
