This course will introduce students to the major theoretical discussions and practical actions that contribute to the field of bioethics. We will especially focus on the implications that these discourses and practices have for our living in a diverse and multicultural world. The course will include an introduction to essential bioethical terminology and the foundational ethical theories and perspectives that are relevant to this field of study. Several topics will then be explored in more depth; these topics may include: justice and health care allocation; human subject research; genetic technologies; organ donations and transplants; end of life alternatives; and so on. Prerequisite: Second-year standing or above.
