ethics.jpg In the field of Ethics, or moral philosophy, academics consider how people live and act in society. The discipline covers a wide range of issues including life, the soul or moral conscience, self and others, education, social and personal welfare, justice, violence, sex, gender, minorities, and more.

Students who engage with these issues build on a foundation of literary research in philosophy and history of ethics from a range of eras and geographies to develop their reading and critical thinking abilities. It is also important for them to cultivate the skills necessary to confront the problems emerging in society and in dialog with people from different fields.

Students will refine the way they think, both through careful individual self-reflection and dialog. The program prepares students majoring in ethics to study clinical philosophy at the graduate level. The faculty hosts a range of events for its undergraduate and graduate students as well as the wider public, from dialog-based programs to surveys, workshops, research meetings, and symposiums.
