Course Description and Goals The course draws on key concepts and themes from philosophy along with pertinent material from other disciplines. Through lectures, discussions and class activities, course content will be examined from a philosophical perspective and will be subject to reflection and critical analysis by the students, particularly with respect to their own values and interests. This course enables students, in keeping with the general character of philosophy, to reflect on and critically analyze issues concerning ethics in business and the professions and how they bear on social equality in the US. Overall, the course is designed to give students an opportunity to: become acquainted with major themes and methods in ethics as applied to business and the professions; apply those themes and methods in the critical examination of business and professional practice and its role with respect to social equity; and, acquire conceptual tools useful in the life-long development of their own views and values concerning the role of ethics and social justice in their communities, lives, and careers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
