PHIL 5120 Professional Ethics 3/0/3
This course examines ethical questions that can arise in the professions and occupations, such as: Is my privacy violated when my job requires that I can be tested for drugs? What should I do if I know that my employer is making an unsafe product? Should physicians ever lie to their patients? Do corporations have any responsibilities beyond making a profit for their shareholders? The course also examines more theoretical issues concerning professionalism and the professions, such as the nature of the relationship between professionals and clients and the connection between ordinary and professional morality.
