Society and the Professions
Program in Ethics
Upcoming EventsThere are no scheduled events at this time.
Washington and Lee recognizes a social need for specific and systematic attention to normative ethics, to questions of human value as they relate to business, the environment and the professions. The Society and the Professions program is involved in ethics instruction across the curriculum and offers specific courses on normative issues in four areas: business, law, medicine and the environment. The program is also closely associated with the Department of Journalism and Mass Communications offerings in journalism ethics, with the Shepherd Program for the Interdisciplinary Study of Poverty and Human Capability, and with the Program in Environmental Studies.
