The Society of Christian Ethics welcomes new members annually. There are two categories of membership: full and student.
Full membership in the Society is open to persons in the following groups: (1) college, university, or seminary teachers of Christian ethics or social ethics; (2) persons teaching in similar institutions in other fields who are concerned with the relation of Christian ethics to their subject matter; (3) persons whose full-time professional work in church, government, social agency or elsewhere is related to the purposes of the Society. Candidates for membership must have at least one of the following: a Ph.D. or equivalent degree or scholarly publications in the above-named fields, or a full-time teaching position in ethics or related fields in an accredited institution of higher learning.
Student membership is open to graduate students in ethics or related fields upon matriculation into a doctoral program. This status ordinarily may be retained for not more than ten years.
Detailed membership eligibility information is available in Article III of the SCE By-laws. If you meet these criteria, we invite you to complete the application below. Benefits of membership include reduced registration rate at the annual meeting, eligibility to submit proposals for the annual meeting and therefore to be published in the Journal of the Society, and most importantly, a broad network of fellow scholars and others in the field of ethics.
If you are eligible for membership and have created an account here on the site, you may apply online using the Online Membership Form. If needed, you may download the form (doc format) attached below and mail/email it to the SCE.
All applications are formally approved by the Board at the annual meeting so applications need to be received by December 31st.
