Abstract

In view of the increasing number of frauds, scandals and other malpractices being committed in various disciplines all over the world teaching of ethical values has become important to all students especially professional students. Targeting this in view many universities in Australia and the USA have made teaching of ethics as compulsory subject at the under graduate level. India is also following this lead and awareness of teaching ethics as a subject is gaining momentum. In this paper we have outlined how ethics can be taught as a compulsory subject as well as how we can incorporate teaching of ethical values in different subjects.
