Ethics, Culture, and Society (BS)
A themed interdisciplinary program of study combining courses from at least two academic disciplinary areas including History, Philosophy, and Art, with a focus on collaborative problem-solving for the common good. Personal choice drives each student’s pathway, with transdisciplinary perspectives and creativity applied to real-world issues in the La Crosse community and beyond. Course-embedded assignments are connected to the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethical Leadership series of speakers and annual conference.
All majors are required to take a minimum of 12 credits in one discipline and nine credits in another, unrelated discipline. One of these disciplines must be in the Liberal Arts (art, history, literature, philosophy, mathematics, and social and natural sciences). All majors are encouraged to take more than the minimum requirements. For transfer students/students changing majors: No substitutions for ECAS-310/311 or ECAS-400. Credits for former major shift to a minor.
