Katie Bernhard, '15 Environmental Studies
Culminating Project: To be determined! I am considering focusing on either laboratory animal testing (can animal testing be considered ethical if in a scientific context, resulting in the greater good of the species or humanity?) or industrial agriculture.
Reason for minor: I have always been interested in bioethics, animal rights, and agricultural/industrial ethics. An understanding of ethical theory is very important but has been largely left out of modern discourse; I think that more students and academics today should have at least a background in ethical theory or practice.

Culminating Project: Not yet finalized! I am considering taking a look into the ethics of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly called Obamacare. I am intrigued by the moral quandaries surrounding healthcare in the U.S. that Obamacare proposes to solve, as well as the ethical issues that this policy presents.
Reason for Minor: First, I love that ethics classes span across many different academic departments. This provides an opportunity to explore different parts of the academic offerings at Dartmouth, discovering both commonalities and differences in coursework, while still forming a cohesive "cluster" of related courses at the end of your minor. Second, and more importantly, I feel that the ethics minor supplements my major of government perfectly. I think that studying ethics provides a means of analyzing moral issues that will inevitably arise in any government class.
