The minor in Ethics responds to the need to provide our students with increased opportunities to address moral questions arising in public and professional life. All students are welcome to pursue this minor, but those who intend careers in business, government, journalism, law, and medicine should be especially interested. Courses in the minor are designed to give students a solid background in the literature of Moral Philosophy and Moral Theology as well as opportunities to address and study contemporary moral questions.

Note: The Philosophy Department commonly cross-lists 28x and 38x courses. To satisfy the requirements of the Ethics Minor, a student must take at least one 300-level Philosophy course, either PHIL 386 or one of the PHIL 38x courses in the Elective Courses list. Finally, the courses in the Ethics Minor may be taken in any order, though the capstone course should generally be taken near the end of a student's academic career at King's.
