AU's unique Ethics minor--shared between the Philosophy and Religion departments--trains students to be more ethically diverse and aware of their global responsibilities. If planned correctly, almost EVERY MAJOR can benefit from this opportunity and add this minor with as little as ONE additional course beyond their core requirements.
To obtain this minor, students must satisfy two courses from each department (6 hours each), and then can choose an approved elective (3 hours), designated by the Ethics Minor Committee. For more information on scheduling, or for a complete list of approved electives, please see the link below or contact the program chairs (Dr. Craig Hovey or Dr. Louis Mancha).
Note: Religion and Philosophy majors may count only one of the ethics courses from that major toward the ethics minor requirement in that department.
