o Five further pages for midterm, eight further pages for final. o Exceeding length, not complying with format: reduction of grade by half point, e.g., B turns in to B-. § This provision is intended to reduce everyone’s workload by punishing rather than rewarding over-long submissions. o One additional page for references cited (if any). Due dates o Mid-Term, five pages, due on Fri Nov 1 before 10 PM o Final, eight pages, due no later than last minute of the final exam period: Thu Dec 12, 1130-1229 § Early submission encouraged. § There can be NO ad hoc excuses for late submission of the takehome final. § Notify TAs well in advance about any submission problem Writing Skills. I encounter graduating students who are not able to write well, and I know from lifelong experience that lacking that skill will limit their career opportunities. In upper-level courses you won’t have a discussion session and a TA closely linked to you. Take advantage of this opportunity to get better at making good arguments and writing well. TAs grading your take-home exams will be providing you with advice about our expectations and how to fulfill them. Additionally, take advantage of the UCSD Writing Center for undergraduates . They will welcome and assist you.

Pay close attention to the reading instructions in the schedule below. I try to keep readings to a minimum so that students will read text closely. Thus, for some readings that you will open in pdf or by url, you are assigned only selected pages. Sometimes, but not always, I have indicated where to start and where to stop in the pdf itself – but always check the schedule. I have seen students neglect this and do twice the work they need to do. Save yourself work. SCHEDULE Moral Theories Week 1.

    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.
