15:320 Catholic Sexual and Medical Ethics
Dr. Shawn McCauley Welch
February 1 – April 30, 2021
This introductory course in Catholic Sexual and Medical Ethics builds on the introduction to Roman Catholic fundamental moral theology and considers both the main principles as well as contemporary debates and applications within the areas of sexual and especially biomedical ethics. It seeks to prepare students for pastoral practice related to sexual and bioethical areas of human life, and it engages issues such as the meaning and purpose of human sexuality, natural family planning and artificial contraception, abortion, reproductive technologies, extent of medical treatments, and euthanasia.
Those not currently enrolled in a program at Saint Meinrad may apply to take the course in non-degree study; the application is available here. Registration for the spring term will open November 2, and is due by January 1. More information is available on the website: https://saintmeinrad.edu/graduate-theology/how-to-apply/ or with director of admissions John Schlachter, firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those considering further theological study, we will be hosting an Online Open House for Prospective Students next Wednesday, October 14, from 6:30 – 8:00 pm Central Time. Registration is available here: https://saintmeinrad.edu/graduate-theology/open-house/.
