Ethics studies introduce students to the examination of morality. It is a branch of philosophy that seeks to answer the basic question: “What should I do in this situation, all things considered?” The field of ethics is also one of action. It strives to enable people to act fairly and compassionately in all areas of human life. Ethics deal with critical issues such as euthanasia, in-vitro conception, violence, privacy, human rights, poverty and environmental sustainability. Applied ethics can make life safer, healthier and more meaningful.
