Surveying 298 students from four graduate schools in the hospitality and tourism management, this study examined the level of awareness and the current status & future education direction of research ethics. Students' level of awareness of research ethics turned out to be relative low. There appeared no independent research ethics class and research methodology class was a main course for students to learn research ethics. Most students had no chance to learn research ethics and only a few learned it through personal help from colleagues. Students felt that learning research ethics in the past was helpful and that they showed high level of the necessity and participation intention on research ethics class in the future. Finally, their preference of future education of research ethics turned out that department should lead the education of research ethics and that the class with case study types should be given with less than 12 hours a year. In terms of topics to be taught, much interest was shown in issues of research misconduct and data processing.
