This 18-hour minor engages students in three important areas of humanistic inquiry that are in crisis in this rapidly developing and globalizing technocratic era: what it means for something to be true, what meaning is and how one finds it, and what does and should have value. It meets these objectives through a combination of three-credit and one-credit course options in the areas of philosophy, religion, and ethics.

This minor has been designed to accommodate a broad range of UE students by maximizing the number of choices a student can make in tailoring the minor to their interests and major(s) and because six of the eighteen required hours may be met with one-credit text seminars thereby allowing students to make progress toward the minor even in heavy-credit semesters. This makes the TMV minor a viable option for many students in UE's professional programs while also complementing many majors within the College of Arts and Sciences.
