SOCIOL260-01C Ethics in Justice (with Matthew Gregory)

This course examines how philosophies of justice and ethical challenges may influence or shape human behavior. This course will expose students to the ethics of justice by contemplating the challenges that arise when considering right versus wrong (Who defines what is right? Are definitions of right actions universal?) by looking at a series of historical and contemporary issues in social and criminal justice. The goal of the course is to expand thinking about the personal, societal, and professional considerations brought to bear when making judgements regarding what is right and what is wrong in social policy and justice.

Remote: Courses that are typically taught face-to-face will be delivered remotely this fall. As opposed to an online course, which requires no live sessions and allows a student to study anytime, a remote course is either: (1) a course with live class sessions delivered via web conferencing, or (2) a course with pre-recorded lectures that a student can watch anytime, typically paired with live discussions sessions. For more detail on the remote format of a specific course, contact the instructor.
