Bioethics can be defined as the study of ethical problems raised by the life sciences. Important areas are biomedical ethics, clinical ethics, biotechnology ethics and animal ethics. The course focuses on problems related to, e.g., genetic testing and gene therapy, clinical encounters, end-of-life situations, resource allocation in health care, animal experimentation and genetically modified food. Cases as well as theoretical arguments are discussed.
In the course students read and analyse texts, participate in group work, write papers and are actively involved in seminar discussions. In addition, lectures and guest lectures are offered. Work with web resources and visits at workplaces outside the university may also be provided.
Active participation in seminar discussion is expected of the students. The course is examined by writing a paper. Students who have failed an examination are normally allowed to retake it on two additional occasions, one of which should be arranged shortly after the first examination.
