Academic Requirements

Crown’s core course, Ethical Issues in Emerging Technologies, presents several rapidly growing technologies, shows where those technologies are taking us, and provides reasoning skills to help evaluate the consequences to individuals and societies. Students focus on developing strategies that can guide them in making public policy decisions and personal decisions concerning these technologies. The course typically includes units on ethical issues arising from biotechnology, information technology, and artificial intelligence.
