The Health-care Ethics program is a concentration of courses offered by disciplines concerned with health-care practices and the education of health-care practitioners. The minor is designed to heighten a student's awareness of what constitutes ethical concerns, problems, and activity from the perspectives of various kinds of health-care practitioners, clients, and institutions. Ethics courses present perspectives on ethical life in order to alert the student to the conceptual dimension of ethical activity and the existence of differing and conflicting modes of ethical reasoning.
Students wishing to enter this program need to be certain that required prerequisites of many of the courses within the program are met.
