Professionals in technically demanding fields are commonly asked to apply their expertise to other seemingly unrelated disciplines. As a result, they must have a comprehensive understanding of not only their own field, but also secondary knowledge of another broadly based, often interdisciplinary, field of study. A chemist might lend his or her expertise to a matter of legal or ethical importance. A curator might evaluate scientific and historical evidence about a painting’s authenticity. A journalist might research a story involving science, medicine, and technology. The major in Ethics will integrate with the following majors: management, television/radio/film, broadcast/newspaper journalism, engineering, computer science, biology, biomedical and chemical engineering, political science, public health, anthropology, psychology, sociology, and international relations, but other combinations may also be possible with approval of the director. This synergistic approach adds scholarly mettle to both the major and the interdisciplinary program, while exploiting their connective properties. First- and second-year courses contemplating the Integrated Learning Program in Ethics are advised to take one of the following courses: ANT 185, PHI 191/PHI 192/PHI 209, REL 252, or WGS 230/SOC 230.
