This paper explores the redesign of an intermediate-level module on 'Computers and Ethics' (IT225) that has been running for a number of years within the Humanities Information Technology (HIT) degree pathway, in what is now the Department of Humanities, Arts and Languages (HALS). The position of HIT at London Metropolitan University is somewhat unusual since, unlike most similarly named subjects, it does not encompass humanities computing (a technical subject concerned with such matters as database archiving of cultural material). It also exists distinct from social science approaches to information technology, such as those found in Digital Media and Business studies. This leaves HIT operating in the very specific domain of applying humanities-based analyses to the realm of computing. Central among these are philosophical forms of analysis, including those derived from ethical theory. 'Computers and Ethics' thus lies right at the heart of the HIT mission. Although IT225 is not a 'core' module, it is designated for the Ethics as well as HIT degree.
