Applied Ethics Certificate (CERT)

Print Version Print
College of Liberal Arts | School of History, Philosophy, and Religion | Interdisciplinary Program Detail


The Applied Ethics undergraduate certificate builds upon the various courses in ethics taught in the School of History, Philosophy, and Religion and courses with ethics-related content found throughout the university, in order to provide students with a systematic and thorough understanding of the moral world for their civic, professional, and personal lives.

Students pursuing a major in any academic or professional field may also pursue applied ethics for educational interest and for professional preparation. The certificate adds a critical philosophical dimension to students’ understanding of their professional aspirations.

Students seeking a baccalaureate degree at OSU may earn the Applied Ethics certificate by completing a minimum of 28 credits of approved course work.
