Academic Department

IT & Information Systems
Instructor: Dr. Jonathan Trower

Despite the long name for this course, it really is a course about information technology, ethics, and privacy. IT certainly has the potential to impact individuals, organizations, and society in many different ways, some positive and some not. Throughout the entire course we explore a wide variety of IT-related topics (see syllabus) and analyze them from the perspective of several different ethical frameworks. As we discuss each chapter and case study students are expected to frame their discussions within one of those frameworks. Students are also expected to participate in one or more of the HSB “Business Ethics Forum” activities held during the fall semester.
