**Many BETH 315 bioethics international courses have been approved for engineering breadth requirements.  Courses will count for the Engineering “Humanities and Social Sciences” breadth requirement.  These courses are especially germane to engineers as much of their content focuses on ethical issues that emerge solely or at least in part due to the developments of new technologies. For example, value laden and still controversial end of life issues became particularly acute when the ventilator (or “respirator” as it was called in the 60’s) made possible the indefinite extension of life (or, in some cases, prolongation of the dying process) raising questions about the proper use of ventilatory technology. This is true in a host of other areas addressed in many of our international bioethics intensives such as the appropriate use of various reproductive technologies or ethical considerations in embryonic stem cell research. Ultimately, it is an extremely important educational goal for engineers in training think critically about the broader normative dimensions of their work. Our international intensives engender this critical thinking and thereby help to achieve this goal.  These courses count only for the Engineering breath requirements that combine humanities and social sciences.  The courses do not count toward the separate humanities requirements and social sciences requirements in Arts & Sciences, Nursing, and Management.  These courses count in Engineering only for humanities credit.  Courses DO course for Global and Cultural Diversity Credit for Arts and Sciences students.
