FASPE is a set of innovative programs for students in professional schools designed to address contemporary ethical issues through a unique historical context. The Fellowships provide journalism, law, medical, seminary, and business students with a structured program of study that initially focuses on the role of their chosen professions in Nazi Germany and the Holocaust and uses that historic focus as a framework for the consideration of contemporary ethical issues. Through an all-expenses-paid two-week summer intensive course in New York, Germany, and  Poland, students will explore such topics as The Rule of Law vs. Lawlessness; The Role and Limits of Bioethics; The Goals of Morality in the Face of Evil; The Responsibility to Report; and Ethical Limitations on Profit-Seeking.

Take a look at the 2014 FASPE Journalism blog with coverage and details about the 2014 Journalism trip.
