Ethics Bound: Embedding Ethics into the City College General Core Curriculum

A professional and curriculum development program that would embed ethics into the college’s general education curriculum.

Montana State University Billings City College general education faculty seeks to utilize a humanities initiative to embed applied ethics across the core curriculum through four themes: environmental, intercultural, medical, and technological. This solution will grow inter-disciplinary study among faculty, generate humanities-based resources, unify the general education curriculum, and expand ethical reasoning for 77% of Associate’s seeking students. To reach an institutionalized goal, a two-and-a-half year program of activities with at least 40 faculty contact hours, for nine full-time faculty, has been created with three phases: faculty development, curriculum development, and implementation and assessment. After establishing a working knowledge of applied ethics, faculty will create and implement an embedded curriculum, and produce a sustainable process for continual improvement.
