Ethical Theory and Practice

Only available to currently enrolled Drexel students.

The Certificate in Ethical Theory and Practice exemplifies Drexel's commitment to engaged education and the Philosophy Program's emphasis on the inter-involvement of theory and practice. In our family, civic, work, and professional lives, we are confronted with issues of conduct and choices about what to do, what to create, how to move through the world and what kind of persons to be. This Certificate reflects each student's potential to move through the world as a positive and constructive force no matter what field of endeavor he or she may pursue.
