Minor in Ethics
Students taking courses in ethics will find themselves
confronted with some of the great questions that assail the
thinking person. Insights and theories formulated by major
philosophers of the Western and Eastern intellectual traditions are
examined and the basic skills of philosophical thought are
mastered. It is the aim of the Division of Philosophy and Religious
Studies to teach each student to philosophize. Ethics is offered as
a minor only; there is no major in ethics.
A minor in ethics consists of 18 credits. At least one course
must be a religious studies course. Students minoring in ethics
must take PHL 2100 and one course in non-Western thought from
philosophy or religious studies. The remaining 12 credits shall be
in applied ethics from either philosophy or religious studies.
