This minor offers EIU students the opportunity to enhance their understanding of the complexities of moral decision-making and the principles involved in making reasoned, ethical choices. In addition it provides students with an opportunity to apply ethical principles in a variety of discipline-specific circumstances such as medicine, media, and sport. This helps the student to better understand and evaluate his or her own instinctive philosophical beliefs and assists the student in developing an independent ethical standard.
This minor is open to all EIU students in good academic standing. Students must achieve a minimum of C in each course applied toward the minor and all courses must be completed at EIU.
