PHL 106

Ethics

This class satisfies the Humanities requirement. Some of these classes enable students to earn credit for the Great Books program; the Great Books classes have lower class size and are discussion based. Each instructor develops his or her own focus for PHL 106. Please contact the instructor for information on the class focus and books.

Please note that all of our ethics classes also satisfy one of the three core requirements for those students seeking to complete the Peace and Social Justice Studies concentration.
