HMT2000 Ethical Issues and Human Rights
Students who have previously completed CDS2000 cannot enrol in this course.
This course introduces students to the main legal, ethical, and social justice responsibilities that are integral to professional and research contexts. While considering a range of approaches to moral philosophy, students will focus on a rights based approach, together with an awareness of contemporary social justice issues. Examples and applications will be taken from a range of professions (e.g. human services, journalism) and codes of research ethics (e.g. human subjects, animal ethics).
