2020-2021 Undergraduate & Graduate Catalog
Practical Ethics Minors
Choosing one of these minors will add a complementary credential to students in any Grand Valley major program by providing them with a thorough grounding in philosophical thinking about ethics and value. Students can choose courses tailored to their specific area of study. A grounding in philosophical thinking, especially thinking about ethics and value, is of significant personal, practical, and professional value to students pursuing many different major programs.
Students from all majors can elect one and only one of these minors. A minimum of 18 credits are required for any of the minors. Two courses are required courses in each of the minors, PHI 102 and PHI 460. Additionally, the student must select four electives, two of which must be upper division courses (300- or 400-level).
