No matter your area of study or line of work, ethics have an effect on policies, principles, and behavior. As an official observance, National Ethics Awareness Month draws attention to how crucial the ongoing study and practice of ethical engagement is.
Modernity comes with unforeseen dilemmas that shape the way we experience the world. Ethics takes a practical approach in exploring humane and sensible solutions to otherwise unavoidable and irreconcilable problems.
Ivy Tech offers a number of classes that take exclusive looks at ethics through the lens of many different disciplines:
PHIL 102: Introduction to Ethics

BUSN 120: Ethics and Social Responsibility
