Biomedical Humanities, B.S.

The Biomedical Humanities program prepares students for careers rooted in the sciences and equips them to participate in fields such as medicine, law, pharmacy and public health in a way that is attentive to the complexities of the human experience.

The program sits at the intersection between biomedical inquiry and questions explored by the humanities: human nature, the experience of being a patient, the experience of death and dying, complex biomedical ethics issues, and more.

Our Biomedical Humanities curriculum combines biomedical training with the rigor of a classical humanities degree, allowing students to critically engage their field while also being skillful practitioners. Students learn skills for ethical discernment, rhetorical expertise and compassionate engagement.

The central focus is on students engaging the humanities from a scientific background; however, students with classical humanities majors (Christian Studies, History, English, etc.) who are interested in questions at the intersection of science and the humanities also benefit from the program.
