The courses listed below carry the Georgia Tech-specific Ethics attribute. While some courses (as designated) meet Humanities or Social Science requirements, not all of the courses listed below will meet Core Curriculum (general education) requirements. Additionally, some programs may require specific courses that address their ethics degree requirements. These specific courses may or may not appear on the list below. Check with the major school accordingly. 

Any course that is to be assigned the Ethics attribute must receive approval from the Institute Undergraduate Curriculum Committee GenEd and Policy Subcommittee, the Institute Undergraduate Curriculum Committee, and the Academic Senate. Courses that are considered for approval to carry the Ethics attribute must address the Ethics Attribute Learning Outcomes in the course syllabus. 

The learning outcomes for the ethics attribute are broadly crafted to accommodate ethical principles and applications across disciplines.

Course proposals should include learning outcomes that reflect these broad institution-level statements but are contextualized to reflect disciplinary principles and course level content.  

To carry the Georgia Tech-specific ethics attribute, a course must demonstrate alignment of course level objectives, content, and assessments with each of the following:  

  1. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in real-world contexts.
  2. An ability to assess actions or decisions based on established ethical principles and theories, or through deliberative processes.
  3. An ability to consider the implications of actions, both broadly (e.g. global, economic, environmental, or societal) and for individuals.
