Ethics Summer Programs
The application of ethics infuses nearly every aspect of our lives and shapes how professionals approach their work in fields as diverse as healthcare, law, political science, journalism and economics. Pre-college students seeking to better understand how the theory and practice of ethics has evolved historically and been applied in the 21st century can learn from expert instructors and collaborate with peers by participating in ethics summer programs. Critical thinking and reason are the foundation of an education in ethics. Students diving into ethics summer programs ranging from a few days to several weeks can focus on these essential skills while also studying other aspects of liberal arts. As students aim to bolster the common good by employing their new ethical knowledge, they can push further and discover the underpinnings of the ethical categories of virtue, consequentialist and deontological. Whether students approach their learning from a social, personal, religious or business perspective, they will depart their chosen summer program well equipped to navigate a complex, morally hazardous world.
