Ethics, Minor

The minor in ethics educates students about the Mercy core values. It encourages them to take actions that accord with those values in their lives and careers, and to promote policies that accord with them in the wider society.

Minor Sequence

Students minoring in ethics are required to take 15 semester hours of credit in ethics courses. Students may "double-count" the course they take to fulfill the General Education ethics requirement (including BU319) toward completion of the minor. Students may also "double-count" courses used for the ethics minor with those used to fulfill the requirements of another academic program.
