The Problem: The purpose of this study was to determine if there were significant differences between male and female college students' perceptions on a survey of ethics. Method: A quasi-experimental research design was administered with gender as the primary independent variable. Approximately 100 students from the School of Education Program at San Diego State University were distributed an ethics survey and a total of 78 male and female students responded to the on-line survey. For each participant a composite score was calculated for the survey items using a Likert scale. Results: The analysis of this study revealed no significant differences of the perceptions on a survey of ethics between male and female students in the School of Teacher Education Program at San Diego State University. This finding suggested that there was no significant difference in male and female perceptions about ethics. However, the lack of a statistically significant difference by gender may have been due to the small number of male participants in this study.
