Ethical Reasoning Requirement

In addition to the courses listed below, the Program offers two kinds of independent study/research courses: "Independent Studies in Ethics and Society" (ETHICSOC 199) for students wishing to explore a self-defined topic of special interest with one of the Center’s faculty, and "Ethics in Society Honor Thesis” (ETHICSOC 200A, 200B, 200C) for senior honors students working on their theses.  Students should consult with Pam Goodman, the Program Coordinator, to ensure they enroll in theses courses with the correct instructor.

Courses are listed in alphabetical order according to department. Some courses appear more than once if crosslisted with multiple departments/centers. For a comprehensive list of courses and requirements, please visit ExploreCourses
