Ethics (Minor)

From the time of Plato, the Western world has been struggling with questions about what one ought to do in a given situation, how a right action is determined, and what makes someone a good person.  Today it seems like there is always another ethical scandal in business, in health care, in the political system, or in the justice system and many are calling for increased attention to ethics education.  The student who takes this minor will have the opportunity to examine issues as varied as cheating in classes, genetic engineering, marketing to specific demographics, as well as the rich history of ethical theories in the West.
