CSCI 216 Technology, Ethics, and Society

Flyer for CSCI 216

CSCI 216 satisfies the Ethics and Human Values General Education Perspective. The course will cover traditional ethics topics like utilitarianism and deontonolgy. Then it will consider the ethical and social implications of new technologies like robotics, human enhancement, genetic engineering, and nanotechnology.

This course is designed for non-computer-science majors. Computer science majors should take CSCI 315E instead of this course.
