The course builds on the students' knowledge of fundamental moral theology and introduces the students to Catholic approaches, principles, and moral norms related to sexual ethics and bioethics. The course will be divided into two parts. The first part will take up sexual ethics while the second part will take up bioethics. For each part of the course, a discussion of basic approaches, methods and specific church teachings will be followed by case applications. The course aims to develop the students' skills in addressing pastoral and moral cases involving sexual ethics and bioethics.

Topics covered in sexual ethics include the following: Christian anthropology, the meaning of sexuality, heterosexual relations, masturbation, premarital sex, conjugal life, divorce and separation, civil marriage, celibacy and virginity, homosexuality, and other sexual concerns. This is a discussion of ethical norms for pastoral ministers and workers aimed at avoiding sexual harassment and abuse in ministry. There will also be a discussion on the CBCP protocol on handling cases of sexual abuse. Case studies will be presented and discussed. Grade will be evaluated through examinations.
