Seminars that Fulfill WAY-ER

Ethical Reasoning (ER)

What counts as right and wrong action? What are valuable qualities of human character? We examine such questions in the study of ethics, as the ability to reason about ethical issues, draw defensible conclusions, and assess competing ethical claims is fundamental to individual development and to the functioning of a good society.

You’ll need to take one course in Ethical Reasoning (ER).
