The Ethics and Development Specialization officially begun in Fall 2005. There are 30 affiliated faculty members from 10 participating departments to serve on student program committees and teach courses in ethics and development. We have a number of events like guest lectures, colloquies, and brown bags.

Interested students should contact Program Director Dr. Fred Gifford to discuss course requirements and the other components of the program.


Upcoming Conference:
Ethics and Development Workshop at MSU:
When: All day, Saturday April 11, 2009, beginning at 9:00 AM
Where: Residential College in the Arts and Humanities Theater, Snyder Hall

The central purpose of this workshop is to examine interdisciplinary inquiry concerning development that combines ethical analysis and empirical research.† It is of special interest for graduate students in (or considering) MSUís Graduate Specialization in Ethics and Development, as it will aid them in planning and carrying out their practicum project, but it will be helpful to others as well. Each of the main panels will be followed by breakout sessions and a reconvening of the whole group.

The workshop is free and open to all, but please RSVP to John Ouko by Friday, April 3.
