Bioethics

World petri dish

The interdisciplinary bioethics minor introduces students to critical moral questions on issues related to individual, public, and global health; professional health care decision-making, and health policy.

Bioethics minors will gain an interdisciplinary perspective on these topics through required and elective courses, including: an introductory bioethics course, thematic courses in the humanities and sciences, a values course, and a research ethics capstone course.

The minor is open to all Fordham College Rose Hill and Fordham College Lincoln Center undergraduate students. Students interested in the minor should contact Center for Ethics Education Associate Director for Academic Programs, Steve Swartzer, PhD.

Keep up to date with all of the latest program news and events as well as international and national bioethics discussions.
