Applied Ethics Minor

Few topics today are as relevant as ethics is to nearly every field, every career and every major. The applied ethics minor adds an edge to the resume of students interested in law, business, medicine, education, social policy and the environment. With a foundation in the political and philosophical theories that define ethics, the "application" considers cases and real-world dilemmas people face in our evolving society.
