Undergraduate Catalog 2014-2015
PHL 131 Field Work in Ethics
3 hours; 3 credits
The student must be working at a job, paid or volunteer, for at least six hours a week in an organizational setting. Through an extensive ongoing journal, the student develops ethical analysis of job-related events and integrates these with ethical theory as taught in PHL 130. Four areas of knowledge will be stressed: ethical self-observation and judgment, assessment of relations between individuals on different status levels of the organizations, how the built-in structures of the organization may aid or hamper self-esteem and/or work performance, and, finally, how truly the organization functions according to its socially mandated goals. Periodic individual conferences will be scheduled with the instructor.
