Professional ethics is necessary for architects to perform their job well as well as education and dedication. In this paper, I reviewed a role of ethics education for architects and the current ethics education in Korea. Professional ethics is a required code of conduct for profession, but also is considered as a concept containing belief, value, attitude or calling about a profession. Professional specialist should have higher ethical standards than general laborers do, because of their bigger influence on society. Therefore, the architect as a professional specialist behave ethically for sure. KIRA(Korea Institute of Registered Architects) provides the code of ethics and the ethical education for architects. But it seems that there is little approach to the current educational situation. It is likely a professional ethics for architects, working sincerely and tuning requirements of a client with considerations for the public users of the building-to-be up properly. The mandatory ethical education since collage could be a solution for the professional ethics for architects, thinking about the public.
