The minor draws upon course offerings in both departments, giving students the opportunity to pursue an interdisciplinary study of ethics. The minor is open to all Augustana students. Requirements for completing the minor are listed below (for descriptions of these courses, please see the Religion and Philosophy course offerings).

20 credits, including the following:

• Core courses: RELG 203; either PHIL 103 or PHIL 105; and PHIL 320

• Complementary courses: two of RELG 355, RELG 356, RELG 359, RELG 363, RELG 385, PHIL 122, PHIL 312, PHIL 320, PHIL 322, PHIL 324, PHIL 330.

• At least one complementary course must carry a RELG designation.

• A student may substitute RELG 357 and RELG 358 for one of the complementary courses listed above.

Grade Point Average Notation: All courses listed in the catalog as required courses for any major and/or minor, including those courses outside of the department or with a different subject coding, are considered part of the major and will count in the grade point average. Some departments may have additional grade requirements for the courses offered within their department. Recommended supporting courses that are optional and not required may also count in the major depending on the program. For more information see your department chair or the degree requirements for Bachelor of Arts and information on Majors/Minors.
