About this Unit
This unit aims to introduce students to major ethical theories, challenges and concepts in a cross disciplinary environment. While many students would have completed a disciplinary-based ethics subject, this unit will bring students from various schools to engage in critical ethical thinking and decision-making. In so doing, students will be required to identify, distinguish and begin to apply ethical frameworks to discuss and reflect on various cross disciplinary challenges from medical experiments to business decision-making, private/public freedoms to development and justice. As such, students will be required to apply ethical concepts to both their personal journeys as both citizen scholars and future professionals.
