What is the Ethics Minor?

The Ethics Minor is a philosophy-based minor that is administered by the Department of Philosophy and Religion.  Since ethical issues are addressed across the curriculum, appropriate courses in other disciplines can also count toward the minor.

Why minor in ethics?

Ethical issues are important to many human activities, fields of inquiry, and professions.  Indeed, one of the Student Learning Outcomes of Butler University is that "students will make informed, rational and ethical choices." Knowledge of ethics will be beneficial to students as a complement to their major in many different areas, to their post-bachelor education (law, medicine, political science, etc.), to their careers (government, business, etc.), and, more broadly, to finding their way in life.
