Bioethics

Learn about bioethics

We draw on philosophy, science, sociology, history, economics, law and other disciplines in the attempt to answer some of society’s most difficult and interesting questions around the ethics of things such as human cloning and enhancement, prolonging life, genetic discrimination, stem cell research, buying and selling human organs, and the publication of dangerous scientific discoveries.

Why study bioethics?

Bioethics is concerned with controversial topics that have profound implications for the future of humanity and society. It’s a field of study that’s relevant and important to everyone, and will promote development of all-purpose skills in reading, writing, oral expression and critical thinking.
