Ethics & Social Justice 2106

Course Overview

Term Two (2106) builds upon Term One’s study of Ethics and Philosophy and focuses on an examination of a variety of local and global social injustices: (Global access to education, fair trade industries, global water crisis, honor killings, issues of First Nations Peoples, gender biases/patriarchy, refugee crises, etc.).

Students will choose one social injustice and develop an action/awareness campaign to help enact social change. These are fantastic courses where we have valuable and thought-provoking discussions and tease out processes of critical thinking. Students concentrate on the reasoning and logic processes of opinion formulation.
