Minor in Ethics

A Minor in Ethics offers students the opportunity to complement their academic major with the study of ethical theories and their application in diverse areas of human endeavor. It is an interdisciplinary course of study that draws upon faculty and courses from many departments. While the Philosophy \& Religion Department provides the theoretical foundations of the study of ethics and some of its applications, such as in environmental ethics or bioethics, courses from participating departments add a variety of application areas. It is the aim of the program to prepare students from all possible disciplines for their professional lives, not only enabling them to deal with ethical questions and challenges in a reflective and theoretically grounded manner, but also to provide some of the tools needed to participate in professional ethics bodies.

Note that no more than one General Education courses can be selected for the requirements of the Minor.
