The KIE is pleased to announce a new minor in bioethics, as covered in Georgetown student newspaper The Hoya. KIE academic program officers Laura Bishop and Matthew Burstein worked with colleagues in Georgetown’s department of philosophy to develop and administer the minor.
“Any student with career interests in health care, biotechnology or the environment could benefit from the opportunity to think carefully about these issues,” [says Burstein]. “Bioethics, as a field, is marked by its grounding in real-world problems, and so anyone who will confront these issues — let alone try to solve them — will be better equipped to do so.”
You can learn more about the minor on the KIE’s undergraduate education page.
