Ethics & Morals

Ethics and morals both relate to what is ‘right’ and what is ‘wrong’. More specifically, ethics refers to the series of rules provided to an individual by an external source while morals refer to an individual’s own principles regarding right and wrong. In other words, ethics are practically conceived, and shared principles and morals are abstract, subjective, and often religion-based (1).

There are not many college courses taught on morals whereas classes in ethics are required for many degrees such as business, medicine, and law.
