Ethics Bowl

Since 2010, the Jean Beer Blumenfeld Center for Ethics has sponsored a group of Georgia State’s best students to participate in Ethics Bowl tournaments. The GSU Ethics Bowl program is also grateful to acknowledge cosponsors: The Center for Ethics Student Forum and Phi Sigma Tau Zeta (GA).

Very briefly, the point of Ethics Bowl is for students to research and prepare arguments revolving around a series of cases in ethics, applied ethics, and public policy. Students prepare for the Ethics Bowl as part of an upper division class in ethics, Ethics and Contemporary Public Policy.

Students spend weeks preparing to present on these cases. The students on the academic team travel to various regional competitions. They immerse themselves in the research and practice extensively. They learn a lot. If they place among the best in the region, they are invited to the national competition in the Spring.
