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 program 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.

Current ASU undergraduate students may pursue a minor and have it recognized on their ASU transcript at graduation. Students interested in pursuing a minor should consult their academic advisor to declare the minor and to ensure that an appropriate set of courses is taken. Minor requirements appear on the degree audit once the minor is added. Certain major and minor combinations may be deemed inappropriate by the college or department of either the major program or the minor. Courses taken for the minor may not count toward both the major and minor. Students should contact their academic advisor for more information.
A minor in applied ethics can help students toward their career goals in the health sciences, law, business, technology, ministry, journalism, counseling, politics or education.
