The goals of this course are to provide a foundation about ethical thinking and decision making in a general sense and with respect to experimental science. I have endeavored to provide materials and a foundation for discussion that will help guide your understanding of ethics in psychology and other sciences. It is also my hope that this class will provide you with some tools to help you navigate the tough choices we all face throughout life, whether we find ourselves in the laboratory or not. Through the process of discussing numerous real life cases and hypothetical situations, students will learn how to approach and reason about ethical issues in research. I hope this will be one of those classes that stay with you long after graduation.
