“What is the value of life?”
“What does it mean to be human?”
“When does life begin?”
“When does life end?”
“Who decides?”

If questions like these pique your interest and spark your imagination, invest a week this summer exploring them (and many others) with experts in the fields of bioethics, medicine, religion, public policy, law and the humanities. “Being Human in a Brave New World” is an interactive, discussion-driven course adapted from The Ethics Institute’s nationally-known signature program, The Bioethics Project. You will be introduced to the foundational principles of bioethics and The Ethics Institute’s Ethical Decision-Making Method. You will use these tools to analyze and discuss real-life situations and cases, and you will be continuously challenged to answer the ultimate question: Just because we “can” do something, “should” we?
