This course (PHI2630) drew on ethical theories to explore the major ethical issues that one faces as one makes decisions about the kinds of activities to engage in and the kind of life to lead. Issues such as those involving life and death (e.g., abortion, euthanasia, animal rights) and social justice (e.g. discrimination, responsibility to future generations) were examined.
Additionally, this course was part of FSU's Graduate Research Consultant program, designed to bolster research opportunities for undergraduate students as part of their coursework.
The GRC program supports faculty who wish to integrate a research project or assignment into an existing course by providing a stipend to fund an advanced graduate student (a Graduate Research Consultant) who works with the students (30 hours throughout the course) to help them design, implement, and share research projects. Although flexible in design, the research component would typically take the form of individual or group projects that enable the students to develop research questions, collect and analyze data, and share their results via a presentation.
