Learner Outcomes: 

In addition to the learner outcomes for Ethics of Communication, students are required to display an in-depth understanding of the ethical aspects of communication and interpersonal relationships: the law of libel versus the duty to expose wrong doing, conflicts of interest, character flaws that lead to negative behavior; approach moral difficulties on a sophisticated level, recall and discuss textual sources defining the parameters of acceptable behavior; and identify and differentiate between various categories of constructive criticism, etc.


Proficiency exam: The examination is intended to measure a body of knowledge that candidates have acquired through prior learning experiences. Self-Study Format: Students are expected to master recommended readings and study guide materials. Students must have an in-depth knowledge of the parameters of interpersonal relations in terms of their sources, legal structure, philosophy, themes and symbolism; beyond the expectation to have a broad and sophisticated knowledge of social ethics, students must display the ability to present ideas in an organized, creative and well supported fashion through descriptive and thematic essays. The course focuses on the conceptual underpinnings and legal structure of the ethics of interpersonal relations.

Credit recommendation:
