Traditional classroom model
Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: explore the biblical claim that God is in Himself the standard by which we understand right and wrong; compare and contrast ethics as rules separate from being with ethics that derive from being; explore the effect of sin on the understanding of ethics and the experience of ethical choices; compare and contrast common ethical systems; wrestle with ethical questions; discuss a framework for making ethical choices; explore and discuss the ethics of Jesus and the value of community in understanding and clarifying ethical choices; and analyze ethical implications in the development of technology.

Through class discussion, extensive readings, and a research paper, this class provides a context and framework with which to wrestle with ethical issues and determine moral standards. Maintaining the premise that morality is rooted in the character of God, the course examines a number of ethical systems and explores the ethics of Jesus.
