Ethics

Minor

Do you find yourself drawn to discussions and debates about the moral and ethical choices of individuals or organizations?  Is morality a matter of opinion?  If not, what makes something morally acceptable?  required?  wrong?  And why should you be moral, anyway?  Explore answers to these and related questions by examining ethical theories. The study of philosophy with a focus on ethics give you an understanding of the issues at the center of these questions, and will equip you with high-level reasoning skills that employers in every field are seeking.
