Medicine and the Liberal Arts
Medicine and the liberal arts provides students with a broad humanistic viewpoint of the medical situations that present themselves over the course of life. Students will gain a fuller understanding of the art of healing and relating to patients than can be obtained solely through the required course of study in the sciences. The relevance of such a program extends past pre-med students to students of various majors, whether they be planning careers that will deal explicitly with medical issues (for example, government, ministry and health care administration), or whether they simply want to gain a fuller understanding of the ethical, religious and social implications of medical questions that face us all.
Wofford’s Medicine and the Liberal Arts program covers analyses and representations of health care issues in classes from a variety of disciplines.
