ETL 235 The Ethical Life: Moral and Social Responsibility - 3 credits
A sophomore level course providing students with the opportunity to study the major theories of ethics and social justice and explore their own values and beliefs, in context of an individual’s responsibility to the community. Designed to enhance the process of learning and self-exploration by enabling the students to put into immediate practice the ideas they discuss in the classroom. Composed of two interdependent elements: a once a week class that meets for one hour to discuss the theories of ethics, community and social justice and a 28-hour community partnership placement where students provide a needed service that benefits the community directly.
