The Program in Ethics in Society is designed to foster scholarship, teaching, and moral reflection on fundamental issues in personal and public life. The program is grounded in moral and political philosophy, but it extends its concerns across a broad range of traditional disciplinary domains. The program is guided by the idea that ethical thought has application to current social questions and conflicts, and it seeks to encourage moral reflection and practice in areas such as business, international relations, law, medicine, politics, science, and public service.
Students interested in pursuing studies that bring moral and political theory to bear on issues in public life should consult the director. There are many course offerings at Stanford that address moral and political questions. Not all of these courses are crosslisted with the Program in Ethics in Society. Students should consult the director to determine whether such courses may be applied towards an Ethics in Society honors program or minor.
The program's main provisions for graduate students are seminars on topics in applied ethics.
