Bioethics Elective

Tigran Sahakyan

    Do you enjoy arguing or thinking about problems that do not have definitive answers? Do you have strong feelings about morals and wish to expand your horizon? Do you want to share your thoughts about work ethics and the medical field? If you responded yes to any of these questions, you should consider enrolling in Bioethics next year. Students in this course learn to develop convincing reasons for their viewpoints on current ethical issues. Throughout the year we have discussed intriguing topics such as the Tuskegee experiment, the story of Henrietta Lacks, the capture of sea animals, the art of lying, the teen mental health crisis, the hippocratic oath, the controversy regarding transgender athletes in schools, and a variety of other subjects through structured debate. Overall, Bioethics helps students enhance their reading, analyzing, evaluating, and decision-making abilities.
