Philosophy and Ethics LLC Application

Every time we act, we act in the way we consider to be right. But what does it mean to act in the right way? This is the question philosophical ethics tries to make sense of. This Living Learning Community will give you both the conceptual tools and the intellectual skills to contemplate, discuss, and wrestle with ethical questions. You will take two required courses together and a third elective of your own choosing. In addition, you will have several required opportunities each semester to engage with your LLC community members in co-curricular events and activities that will help you to apply in real-world situations what you have learned in the classroom.

Courses required:  PHIL 222 (Contemporary Ethical Problems) in the fall semester, and PHIL 321 (Ethics) in the spring semester.  Additionally, one elective section of an ethics course should be taken in either semester, selecting from the following:  PHIL 219 (Sex and Values); PHIL 225 (Business Ethics), or PHIL 323 (Medical Ethics).

This agreement is binding for both fall and spring semesters. Remember that you must also apply for housing.
