An Introduction to Ethics

The new curriculum means I won’t be teaching Media Ethics anymore, which saddens me. It was my favorite class. Alivia Bryak, one of my current students, created this introduction to my course by pulling from my syllabus, my open week’s lectures and other pearls of wisdom.

This is a fairly good overview of what students could expect:

I believe it's being combined with the law class, which means I won't be teaching it anymore. At least, I hope not as I'm not really qualified to teach law :) I am sure that whoever teaches the new course will be equally vigilant in terrorizing the children. We're good like that.

I can't believe that they're getting rid of this class. Honestly, it was probably one of the most enjoyable ones I've had at Ball State, simply because it was so challenging and thought-intensive. First they got rid of J102 and now this. It makes me mad because all they seem to be doing is making journalism easier for students. That's not what we need! We need to be challenged, even when we hate it. It makes us grow and prepares us for the real world. Hmpf. Whatever. I'm glad I was able to get into this class before they cut it. That's all I'm sayin'. :)
