Minor in Ethics

Emory College of Emory University is one of the few leading research universities offering a minor in ethics. A multi-departmental program, the Ethics Minor complements any student’s major program and will help to prepare you for graduate professional studies in numerous fields including law, medicine, and business. The Ethics Minor at Emory University provides a forum for students and faculty to discuss important ethical questions, from cheating on campus to war, from stem cell research to the nature of professionalism.  Rather than merely another academic program, the Ethics Minor seeks to build a community of students, scholars, and teachers committed to the study of ethics in all of its dimensions.

Requirements:Students pursuing the Ethics Minor must complete five courses in ethics. One course must be “Introduction to Ethics” (PHIL 115). The remaining courses may be chosen from fourteen existing Emory College courses including “Business Ethics”, “Religion and Ecology”, “Military Ethics”, and “Evil: Philosophical, Literary Approaches”.
