Applied Ethics (Minor)

Home / Applied Ethics

Students pursuing the applied ethics minor have the opportunity to develop their critical-thinking, reading, and writing capacities while exploring philosophy and ethical theory. They also have the opportunity to do so in a manner that explicitly complements their major by focusing on one of the minor's track options. This provides students an opportunity to gain a humanistic perspective on a nonhumanities field of study, such as health sciences, business and computer science, thereby adding nuance and depth to their educational experience.
