Teaching Ethics Throughout the Curriculum

Ethics abstract image

Constructed in 2008-2009 and sponsored by the ASA Committee on Professional Ethics (COPE), this section contains resources developed by the ASA Task Force on Teaching Ethics throughout the Sociology Curriculum. These resources are designed to help Sociology faculty with teaching students about professional ethics from early in the undergraduate careers through graduate school, and consists of cases, discussion questions, an annotated bibliography, and web links that can be quickly downloaded or printed for use in sociology classes or by department chairs. This effort builds on the pioneering work in 1997 of Felice Levine, John Kennedy, Joyce Miller, Bernice Pescosolido, and Sue Hoppe, all of whom were deeply involved with COPE at that time.
