The primary objective of this course is to enable you to apply the
theories and frameworks that we cover in class to ethical dilemmas you may
encounter in your everyday life. To encourage you to view the world through an
ethical lens, you will be required to submit two application papers. For each paper, you will identify an
ethical dilemma—either something that you have recently faced in your life (at
work, in school, etc.), or something that you read or hear about on the news.
You will then write one/two paragraph in which you
briefly describe the event and all relevant ethical issues, and the rest of
your paper you will apply one or more of the theories from class to analyze the
dilemma and form a recommendation for how the dilemma should be resolved.
You will need to turn in both of these short papers (2-3 pages,
DOUBLE spaced) No
late papers will be accepted. Any student who uses a student’s paper from
a previous semester will be automatically failed from the course.
