    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This ethics course allowed me to explore the various viewpoints and ethical dilemmas and how they apply to my current major in Occupational Therapy. I would recommend this course to students in every major because it teaches students how to effectively argue and work along side others with differing opinions. Students were able to gain further knowledge of human nature and morality such as the theory of right and wrong behavior. It was fascinating to learn more about innate human motives and reasons for certain behaviors.

    Course highlights:

    This ethics course allowed me to explore the various viewpoints and ethical dilemmas and how to apply it to my current occupation. I learned about past and current ethical dilemmas and how to best maintain neutrality within difficult situations. Group discussions were thorough and allowed students to express his or her thoughts freely. Students were encouraged to share and defend opinions which allowed greater insight of various viewpoints. Prior to taking this class, I wish I had taken a philosophy course to assist me during group discussions and research papers. A general course such as "introduction to philosophy" would be useful in building a foundation in main topics discussed in this course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Prior to taking this class, I would recommend students take a general course such as "introduction to philosophy". This would be useful in building a foundation in main topics discussed in this course. I would advise current students to use introspective thinking about their true opinions and picture life outside their own experiences and upbringing. One exercise I found helpful was to practice "walking in someone else's shoes." Taking time to get to know a fellow class mate that you may not otherwise choose to talk to can assist in gaining unique perspective to life.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I think EVERYONE should learn about ethics because it is a subject that is used commonly throughout everyday life. It is found on the news, through personal relations, movies, books, and having a firm understanding of the subject allows one to expand their mind to other possible conclusions. It has been my favorite class thus far.

    Course highlights:

    Learning about Immanuel Kant and his impact on the ethics subject was one of my favorite highlights. The discussion and argument over Utilitarianism and deontology was probably the biggest highlight of the class, and it explains so much as to how things function within our society.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is really important to keep an open mind when discussing ethics. Fallacious arguments do not bode well within the subject's realm.
