Summer 2020 Course Information
Ethics in Agribusiness

Course Description
Ethical behavior is a crucial issue in American business. Understanding ethics is especially timely for students in agribusiness and agricultural sciences given claims of marketing unhealthy foods, the development of genetically-modified organisms, controversy over hiring undocumented workers, and the consolidation of agriculture into industrial production facilities. Students are taught ethical theories and frameworks used to discuss general ethical questions such as death, theft, and lying, followed by the more specific agribusiness issues mentioned above. Students will formulate their own opinions about these issues, recognize and understand the opinions of others, and be able to accurately and adequately communicate those opinions.
