Module:
Module II
Course Description:

This course combines a broad exploration of the principles of ethical reasoning with a practical application of these principles to ethical problems in health care. We begin by exploring and evaluating four major ethical theories in depth. Building on this foundation, we then examine specific ethical challenges facing health care professionals today, including beginning-and-end-of-life issues, ethics of medical experimentation, freedom of conscience, and just distribution of health care resources. Throughout, we reflect on the principles behind some of the main concepts that health care professionals rely on every day, such as health, quality of life, autonomy, and consent.

UCOR 29X0 Philosophy of the Human Person
This course introduces students to the methods of rigorous philosophical reasoning; introduces students to the philosophical questions, methods, and figures that have played key roles in shaping the Jesuit approach to education and scholarship; and teaches students to critically examine assumptions about reality (especially assumptions about our natures as human beings). Each section explores two or more of the following fundamental philosophical questions: the problem of human knowing, the mind/body problem, the problem of personal identity, the problem of freedom and determinism, and the problem of other persons. This course also aims to develop critical reflective skills to prepare students for more in-depth study in ethics (in the subsequent Ethical Reasoning course), improve critical thinking and writing skills, and enhance students' appreciation for complexity and ambiguity.
