COURSE PROJECT – Final Project

 

 

Analysis of an Ethical Dilemma

For the final project in this course, you will be required to examine in detail a public service ethical dilemma. It must be in the public sector, so it must involve government and its structure and functions. It can be one that you have faced yourself, or one that you believe you may face as you continue in your career, or something that you have perceived as an ethical dilemma that no one is addressing.

The assignments in this course will help you to explore the ethical dimensions of your dilemma. You will synthesize these components, incorporating feedback from your instructor and your peers, into your final project.

To successfully complete this project, you will be expected to:

  1. Analyze an ethical dilemma in public administration.
  2. Evaluate traditional and contemporary theories of ethics in relationship to an ethical dilemma in public administration.
  3. Devise a plan to aid in ethical decision making that leads to an ethical solution.
  4. Illustrate the meaning of professional integrity.
  5. Think critically and communicate effectively to explain personal and professional leadership in the public sector.
