This course introduces students to the field of ethics, particularly Christian social ethics, through a range of classic and contemporary texts. Students learn methods of ethical analysis (virtue, teleological, deontological, and liberative) and investigate contemporary social issues, including sexuality, racism and poverty. The course aims to build our capacities to analyze social conditions and identify constructive and creative moral actions that may lead to more justice.  

Note: Fulfills upper-level Theology and Ethics requirement for Chaplaincy students. Enrollment limited to twenty students.
