1. SURVEY OF TOPICS IN ETHICS COURSES

This survey attempts to identify which topics are most commonly addressed in introductory ethics courses that have a contemporary moral issues or problems component. If (and only if) you teach a course that focuses on practical issues (with little to no discussion of moral theory) or has a mix of theory and problems (either a unit on theory and then problems or a mix of theory and problems throughout), please fill out this survey below.

Please forward this page to anyone who might be interested in filling out this survey and post it online. The link is this:

Any results will be posted here:

Please email me at nathan.nobis@gmail.com with suggestions, comments and questions.

Note: topics after 'world hunger' are topics that survey participants said they teach and were added as they were suggested. Thus earlier participants did not comment on how often they discuss these topics.

Thank you!
