Ethical decision-making, understanding and applying ethical codes and laws, and opportunities to develop critical thinking skills will also be emphasized and practiced throughout the course. Students will engage in project based learning related to unfamiliar cultures. Credit 3 hours. Offered fall and spring semesters. Junior or senior status preferred.
