AIMS
This course is designed to provide students with the basic ideas and skills required for moral reasoning and for
the application of ethical ideas to the cases that arise in daily practical and professional life. Examples
discussed may be drawn from such areas of applied ethics as business ethics, environmental ethics, and
medical ethics. Students will learn about how to approach complex ethical issues from different perspectives,
and how to think critically about them. Students will also be encouraged to develop and defend their own views
about such complex cases.
GENERAL LEARNING OUTCOMES (COMPETENCES)
On successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
 Explain what ethics is about, and what the main issues in ethics are
 Explain some of the main views in ethics are
 Identify ethical issues in their personal and professional lives, and to think about those issues in a
clear and informed way.
 Apply critical thinking, by showing that they can respond critically to issues, form and articulate
opinions as well as justify them in both the written and spoken medium
 Exhibit academic honesty and avoid plagiarism of all sorts
RELATIONSHIP WITH OTHER COURSES
This course is meant to provide the students with philosophical and theoretical tools that can be applied in their
