The course covers historical development of concern with ethics in science as well as practical information needed by students working in science today. Featuring both lecture and discussion components, this course is team-taught by faculty members of the Bioethics and Subject Advocacy Program (BSAP) of the Indiana CTSI. Students have the option of taking the course for either two or three credits.
