The bioethics minor is an interdisciplinary program between departments in the College of Arts & Sciences and the Perelman School of Medicine. The departments are: Anthropology, Health & Societies, Sociology, Philosophy, Political Science, and Medical Ethics.
Six courses are required for the bioethics minor.
Students must complete one course in each of three foundation areas:
- Policy & Culture
Students must also complete one course in each of three content areas:
- Research Ethics
- Clinical Ethics
- Resource Allocation
A course may count toward both the foundation and the content requirement, but not for two or more foundation requirements or two or more content requirements
One course in the minor must be a seminar course and one course must be a comparative course. Any foundation course and any content course may also fulfill the comparative or seminar requirement.
Departments represent different communities. Courses, though cross-listed, have homes in certain departments. Because bioethics is an interdisciplinary field
- Students must select courses from at least three different departments
- Students cannot count more than three courses from one department
