The course provides a comprehensive inquiry into the major components of social responsibility and a study of moral and ethical issues that relate to problems in business. Focus will be on the economic, legal, political, ethical, and societal issues involving the interaction of business, government, and society.

3. Understand basic philosophies of proponents regarding corporate social responsibility.

4. Recognize the pros and cons of both sides of each moral dilemma.

8. Determine the necessary and appropriate steps to reach decisions that are both ethically and socially responsible.

9. Evaluate ethical problems that include diverse professions, backgrounds, orientations, cultural values, and styles; and show how multidisciplinary collaboration can combine different experiences and values to reach decisions that do justice to all relevant considerations.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
