CHP 607 Public Health Ethics 3.0 Credits

This course will explore the basics of ‘public health ethics’: its historical emergence; the theories and approaches used in this discipline; and key ethical issues in contemporary public health. Emphasis will be placed on developing critical thinking skills to guide students in ethical problem-solving. During the first third of the course, we will consider theoretical issues in public health ethics, including the nature and definition of ‘health’, the boundaries of the field, key theoretical approaches, and critical thinking skills. In the following weeks, we will apply these ethical concepts, principles and theories to a number of specific topics and cases in public health. This is a reading and writing intensive course, and students should be prepared to engage in serious dialogue each week in class.
