Biomedical Ethics

Biomedical ethics is a relatively new and fast-growing discipline. Students electing the minor are required to have a basic background of biology coursework, and will take a curriculum that includes 18 credit hours, beginning with a course on basic ideas and concepts in biomedical ethics, followed by a choice of other relevant humanities courses. The minor will be suitable for students in almost any major, especially students pursuing further academic work or careers in medicine, law, the health or life sciences, health policy and administration, informatics or forensics.
