DEFINITION OF BIOETHICS: a discipline dealing with the ethical implications of biological research and applications especially in medicine
Why did the field of bioethics develop and how has it changed over time? This 200-level (blended online/in class) course addresses these questions, introducing freshmen and sophomores to major topics in clinical, research, and population health ethics as well as to methods of ethical analysis. Lectures and class activities begin with the events that prompted the birth of bioethics and move on to staple issues of informed consent, end-of-life care, resource allocation in health care, clinical and genomic research, and public health
ethics. Students will have the opportunity to learn from and interact with core and affiliate bioethics faculty with a diverse range of scholarly expertise and to learn more about the bioethics minor.
This course is a hybrid online course, with at least 50% of content conveyed online in some form. This will include online “mini-lectures” students will watch and weekly online quizzes that students will take to test their knowledge of the lectures and readings. Weekly class assignments and activities may take place in the classroom or online or some combination thereof, as specified by the instructor.

Recent insights from the physical and social sciences make clear that climate change poses novel issues of environmental and social justice. It is also clear that, together with the economic implications of mitigation, these issues lie at the heart of the stalemate in international and domestic efforts for climate regulation.This course will examine efforts for “climate justice” that mobilize law and rights. We will use these efforts to better understand key aspects of legality, rights consciousness, and struggles for justice in light of the increasingly apparent connections between nature and society, and between humans across the globe.
