Ethics Minor

Advisor: Robert Brown
Phone: (540) 568-5415
The 18-hour minor in ethics offers students an opportunity for deeper study into respected ethical thinkers and how ethical theory from philosophy and global religions can be used to understand our individual and social lives. Students are to choose six courses total from either of the lists below. At least one of the six must be from the philosophy list, and at least one of the six must be from the religion list. Students majoring in Philosophy  or Global Religions and Cultures  may double-count two courses (6 credits) from their major toward the minor.

Students may also count one course from another department toward the minor, if the course includes a focus on ethics, with approval from the faculty advisor.
