BIOE 1000 Introduction to Bioethics
4 semester hours
Bioethics is a normative enterprise that reflects on the fundamental nature of human personhood, as well as issues of the common good. Theological reflection is integral to this endeavor. This course will invite students to examine the extent to which Christian theological reflection informs bioethical discourse on issues such as genetic medicine, stem cell research, health care dilemmas, artificial intelligence, beginning of life issues, physician-assisted suicide, and other topics.
