Bioethics Minor

About the Bioethics Minor

The bioethics minor is an interdisciplinary program that prepares you for public discourse and input on issues of bioethical importance, with an emphasis on the sanctity of human life. The minor provides interested students with a foundation for theoretical and applied bioethics from both Christian and secular viewpoints. This minor must be combined with a major (in any field) in order to graduate with your bachelor’s degree and be fully prepared for your chosen career path.

Program Highlights

  • Program requires 16.5–17.5 semester hours of coursework.
  • Your minor will be strengthened by access to Cedarville’s Center of Bioethics, which is dedicated to conducting research, promoting discussion, and engaging scholars on the vital bioethics of our day. The center maintains a Christian perspective on human personalism while encouraging thoughtful discussion on all sides of debates.
