Focus Courses:

Qualifying courses depend on the focus you specify for your Ethics in Society minor.  The Steering Committee approves proposed focus courses on a case-by-case basis after you identify a focus area and the electives you wish to count toward the minor.  These courses need not be centered on ethics per se, but must include a significant portion of course content and/or assignments in which you grapple with the values and norms pertaining to the subject matter.  Sample focus areas and qualifying courses are listed below for suggestive purposes, but these are not the only options.  To discuss possibilities, contact the EIS Program Director.
