In one semester, students will learn ethical decision-making tools they can use in their chosen professions. We will study philosophers’ theories and how they can be applied in everyday workplace dilemmas. The textbook is written in magazine style and engages students with real-life cases from young professionals. We cover dilemmas in strategic communication, news media and entertainment media. Professor Peck’s blog aggregates current issues important to those concerned with ethical decision-making. Students often say they use what they learn in this class to solve personal ethical dilemmas.
