Social and ethical issues have and will continue to confront information technology professionals. As such, both the Association of Computing Machinery and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. organizations have emphasized the necessity for coverage of ethical issues in computing sciences curricula. This paper provides a detailed framework for a computer information science course that addresses these social and ethical issues. This framework includes a weekly plan, student assessment alternatives, suggested reading alternatives, learner outcomes, and the guiding foundations for this course.
