Ethical questions and problems arise in all aspects of life. A minor in ethics can complement and enrich any major field of study. The minor in ethics consists of six courses, four at the 3000 level or above.

The capstone course is an independent study normally taken during a student’s senior year. The course integrates the student’s different areas of study in the ethics minor into a project or thesis. Any professor in any college can sponsor this independent study. Capstone topics must be approved by the ethics minor advisor.

The minor in ethics is sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences and administered through the Philosophy Department. Any undergraduate student at the university can minor in ethics.
