Undergraduate studies in Bioethics

The Centre for Human Bioethics offers three units in Bioethics at undergraduate level at both Clayton and Caulfield campuses:

  • ATS1263 Bioethics: Current controversies (formerly coded CHB1010 and titled Ethics, biotechnology, and genetics)
  • ATS1264 Bioethics: Biotechnology, justice and the law (formerly coded CHB1020 and titled Biotechnology, justice and the law
  • ATS2637 The human body and the international marketplace (formerly CHB2100 / CHB3100 / INT2180 / INT3180)

These units have been designed to be suitable for students from outside the Arts Faculty as well as for Arts students. They may be of particular interest to students in the biological sciences, medicine, nursing, health science, law, or other disciplines which relate to science, medicine and/or social policy. They also provide an opportunity for students to gain an introduction to philosophy in an applied context.

The Centre for Human Bioethics also offers the following philosophy units which count (as elective units) towards the Minor in Bioethics:

  • ATS2875 The moral psychology of evil
  • ATS3873 Philosophical issues in applied ethics.

For details about completing a Minor in Bioethics, which is available to both Clayton and Caulfield students, you should see the Bioethics Area of Study website.
