We all strive to be just. That is, we all care about what is right and try in our lives to do the right thing. But what exactly does justice mean? On what basis do we make judgments about right and wrong? Is it right to torture an innocent human being in order to save thousands? May one innocent person be sacrificed in order to save many more? Is it right to tax the wealthy in order to help the poor? What role should the market play in allocating resources or determining social value? And what role should the state play? Is morality itself relative to particular times and places, or are there certain right answers to moral questions that transcend temporal and spatial bounds?

  Course Description
The three credit UB Seminar is focused on a big idea or challenging issue to engage students with questions of significance in a field of study and, ultimately, to connect their studies with issues of consequence in the wider world. Essential to the UB Curriculum, the Seminar helps students with common learning outcomes focused on fundamental expectations for critical thinking, ethical reasoning, and oral communication, and learning at a university, all within topic focused subject matter. The Seminars provide students with an early connection to UB faculty and the undergraduate experience at a comprehensive, research university. This course is equivalent to any 199 offered in any subject. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade of F or R may not be able to repeat the course during the fall or spring semester.
