    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because it exposes you to issues that are relevant to your day and age.

    Course highlights:

    Bioethics is the study of the typically controversial ethical issues. You are exposed to concerns with ethical questions that arise in relationships among life sciences, biotechnology, medicine, politics, law, and philosophy. Bioethics addresses a broad swathe of human inquiry, ranging from debates over the boundaries of life, for example abortion and euthanasia. The scope of bioethics can expand with biotechnology, including cloning, gene therapy, and human genetic engineering. Additionally, I’ve learned the many approaches to situations such as utilitarianism, they look at these situations and want to produce the most happiness and the least pain.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    The study tips I have is to keep up with the readings and to ask questions if you do not understand.
