BIOL 314 - Bioethics

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: BIOL 121 with a minimum grade of “C-” and BIOL 122 with a minimum grade of “C-“; or consent of instructor
This course introduces bioethics as an interdisciplinary subject through critical thinking, writing, and discussing contemporary issues. Bioethical logic combines both scientific and philosophical reasoning and informs a discussion of how technological advancements may generate social, ethical and legal issues. These issues may require policy and legal considerations within a framework of ethics, and how these actions effect society. We will not only analyze how science is conducted, but also how science is perceived by the general public. Offered alternate years. (CWRM)
