HSC 315 - Bioethical Issues in the 21st Century
(3 cr.) Students gain a solid understanding of bioethical principles and examine ethical dilemmas in medicine and the moral arguments that accompany them. Controversial bioethics issues such as assisted-suicide, stem-cell research, medical marijuana, organ donation and designer babies are explored though research, contemporary media and the students' own moral compasses. They study the role of public policy on bioethics and investigate cases that shaped the way modern medicine is practiced today. The course stimulates discussion leading to final group debate projects. Prerequisite: 1 group; EN 102, BIO 102, BIO 102L; EN 102, BIO 151; Every Year, Fall and Spring
