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).
