The Ethics Concentration is a multi-departmental program designed to complement and enhance a student’s major program, as well as to prepare students for graduate studies and professional careers. The Concentration is open to all Rowan undergraduate and graduate students.
Nearly all professions now have codes of ethics, and many businesses require employees to adhere to various standards of conduct. The concentration is flexible enough to suit our students’ diverse majors and career goals. For example, a student who majors in business and completes the Ethics Concentration might serve as a company’s ethics officer; a student who majors in nursing or biology and completes the concentration could run a hospital ethics committee; a student who majors in political science and studies ethics would be well qualified to pursue graduate work in public policy or law.
The Ethics Concentration contains a core designed to sharpen your critical thinking and reasoning skills in the context of moral reflection. These core courses stress ethical theories and application of ethical theories.
