Minor Requirements

Minor Requirements

The minor in Ethics consists of 20 semester hours divided as follows:

Four Foundations Courses, including:

  • PHIL 1800 and PHIL 3100, which also satisfy the University's core requirements in Philosophy.
  • Two further classes chosen in consultation with the Ethics minor advisor, at least one of which must be in Philosophy, though the second may be offered by departments in any of the Colleges or Schools in the University. These courses should deepen the student’s awareness of the context, presuppositions, and implications of various approaches to ethical reflection.

Two Applications Courses, including:

  • One course in Applied Ethics related to the student’s College or School of origin chosen from PHIL 3100-3145.
  • One elective course in Applied Ethics selected from the PHIL 3100-3145 options without regard to the student's College or School of origin.

NOTE: Philosophy Majors or Minors cannot also earn an Ethics Minor.
