Goal 12: Ethics of Citizenship

In Ethics of Citizenship, we explored different ethical theories and applied them to real-world ethical dilemmas. I learned how to use logic and reasoning to determine what is “ethical” and what is not. This class exposed me to controversial ideas and gave me a foundation for handling difficult ethical situations. In my final paper, I examined theories about abortion and its ethical implications.  Through my experience in this class, I have grown as a decision maker and feel as though the strategies I’ve learned can be implemented in a variety of situations, especially as a current active citizen and future medical professional. Because of Ethics of Citizenship,  I feel better equipped to handle any ethical dilemmas I may experience in the future.
