The Minor in Ethics allows students to focus upon foundational questions about how we should live, both individually and in community. It aims to provide familiarity with central arguments, issues, theories, and positions in ethics, and to develop the student’s ability to think clearly and rigorously about ethical issues. Students will learn to analyze ethically challenging situations and problems, to identify ethically salient considerations, to apply ethical principles and theories, and to argue cogently in favor of ethical positions. The minor helps students develop skills in identifying, developing, and critically evaluating ethical arguments, thinking clearly and independently, and applying principles of good reasoning. The Minor is designed to allow students flexibility in pursuing their interests within the broad area of Ethics.
