Each year at Union College, ethics is taught across the curriculum in a wide range of academic disciplines including the social sciences, natural sciences and humanities.  Courses are taught by Ethics Across the Curriculum grant recipients who either incorporated ethics teaching into an existing course or developed a new course specifically designed to focus on the ethical aspects of an academic area.  Courses incorporating an Ethics Across the Curriculum segment help students learn what everyday ethics is and how its principles are incorporated into many disciplines that deal with substantive issues other than ethics, such as anthropology, chemistry, engineering, and literature. After completing an Ethics Across the Curriculum course listed below, students will be prepared to face the world of tough decisions and will be empowered to exercise moral leadership.
