Practice and Respect Critical and Ethical Reasoning (CER)

The dividing line between an ordered society that serves all citizens and an amoral/unjust society is in the determination and application of a set of moral principles or values. Therefore, students should acquire competency in distinguishing among the major ethical traditions that have shaped civil society. Students should demonstrate a capacity to address contemporary ethical challenges and debates in a variety of ethical traditions. Students should be able to assess the differences among ethical, legal, societal and political issues. Possible courses include philosophy, business ethics, medical ethics, political principles, religious ethics, engineering ethics, or professional ethics.
