If you are interested in furthering your education or earning a degree, but you do not want to attend college on campus, an online course may be the right choice. This option offers coursework and credits that can be applied towards a degree through an online learning environment.

What is an online course in ethics? This class focuses on the philosophical questions of goodness, morality, and right and wrong. This discipline includes a number of theoretical approaches that are often covered in the course. Some of these include utilitarianism, deontology and consequentialist. The course will likely include potential applications of these theories, such as bioethics, business ethics, political ethics and military ethics. By the end of the course, students should be capable of applying philosophical reasoning to moral issues.

This is a skill that is beneficial in many different situations. Critical thinking, and an applied knowledge of philosophy, can help you better understand many situations and challenges that you may encounter in the workplace and throughout life.

If you want to make a career out of philosophy, you may pursue further schooling and teach at the college level. Some positions, such as bioethicist or business practices consultant, directly apply the principles of ethics learned in this class. The career path you take will depend on your individual interests and motive in taking the course.
