Philosophy and Religious Studies


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.

Program requirements

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.
