Module Goals

Our goals are, in one respect, not unlike those that animate other courses, including courses in the basic sciences: we aim to impart to students a specialized “body of knowledge,” to equip them with one of the defining features of their membership in collectives for which we reserve the word, “profession.” But we have other perhaps more ambitious goals: we want to create a space in which our students can cultivate a refined capacity for moral reflection and discourse. That is, we want to be an impetus to the growth, the strengthening, of the moral agency of our students.
