** And, of course, be sure to utilize the Writing an Ethics Paper Resourcesand the Classroom Library **

Choosing a Topic:
Students sometimes struggle choosing – and sticking with – a topic. From a certain perspective, this is understandable, given the state of affairs in our world today. To respond to this, we think there are a few key ways to select a topic for a paper of this type:
Select an ethical issue related to your potential career / major of interest. For example, if you’re going into Nursing, consider exploring an issue in medical ethics; if you study Sociology, consider exploring a sociological issue.
Select a topic for which you’ve carried out previous research. This does not mean you can plagiarize your previous paper/presentation. However, you can utilize your prior research to help provide the context for your ethical issue. This will allow you more time to research, evaluate, and analyze the ethical principles at work. Most importantly, it will allow you to further deepen your knowledge of the topic.
Select a topic related to something in the world that you find deeply problematic, something about which you are deeply passionate. Ask yourself, what is wrong with our world/society/state/schools/etc? Why is this an ethical issue? What is causing the ethical issue? What is the right thing to do?

PHIL 240: Ethics

Term Paper

Overview: An essential part of studying Ethics is learning how to apply the methods of ethical

reasoning to ethical issues in our world. This subfield of Ethics is known as “Applied Ethics.”

Applied Ethics attempts to clarify and respond to a specific moral problem. These moral

problems can include matters of personal behavior and virtue, new technologies, social values

and norms, political institutions and legislation, and others (essentially, if something can be

called “morally wrong,” or “morally problematic,” or “unjust,” then it can be addressed in an

applied ethics paper).

Term Paper Objective:

Students will select an ethical issue in our world today, research the issue, present the

competing positions related to the issue, and then argue for a specific position.

Directions – In order to successfully meet the objective of this paper, students must demonstrate

the following in their submitted paper:

(Please note: this list covers the general features of a good paper; please see the Term Paper

Grading Rubric for the comprehensive list)

1. Clearly identify and explain an ethical issue (this is generally done in the introduction to
the paper)

2. Establish and prove a strong thesis statement. The links from your Term Paper Module
on writing a thesis have been copied here:

a. Creating a Thesis Statement (you are writing an “Argumentative Paper”)
b. Developing Strong Thesis Statements

3. Clearly present the competing positions related to the ethical issue, being sure to (a)
present them objectively, with support from primary and secondary sources, and (b) in

such a way that presents each position in its strongest version
4. Defend the moral theory or moral principle that underlies and justifies your thesis (your

position on the issue).
a. For example: If your paper depends on the “principle of autonomy,” then it is up

to you to convince your reader of the value of autonomy. That is, why should we

care about autonomy? Does, or should, everyone share this view of autonomy?

Does it depend on an accurate view of the human condition? Etc.
5. Includes a conclusion that summarizes and reinforces the thesis, and offers some final

thoughts for your reader
6. Includes a Works Cited page
7. Paper is given a title
8. Paper is proper length

a. 4-6 pages (1,000 – 1,500 words)
b. Double spaced; Times New Roman font; 1-inch margins

9. Paper is submitted on time
