Theories and Applications in Contemporary Ethics

CEED 6100 (3 Credits)

May 19-21, 2015
Rose Hill Campus

Course Description:


This intensive three-day graduate level course is designed to provide cross-disciplinary perspectives on moral theory and applied ethics. Using a team-teaching approach, this course brings together faculty from at least six different disciplines to provide foundational knowledge about moral theory with contemporary applications. In addition to seminars on foundations in various disciplines, the course features lectures and case discussions on issues of current social importance.  Each day of the three-day course, one pair of faculty lead the curriculum, providing foundational knowledge about their field in the morning and discussing ethical applications in the afternoon.

Participating Faculty

The cross-disciplinary lectures and discussions are facilitated by Fordham faculty members and outside professionals in relevant disciplines.  This six-faculty team taught course includes faculty from the humanities and applied disciplines who are paired to provide both foundational moral theory instruction relevant to their discipline and an ethics application or case.

Faculty are rotated. The May 2015 workshop faculty as well as the disciplines and ethics applications will be announced in early 2015.
