Bioethics Master’s Program
We offer a Master's Degree Specialization in Bioethics. The Biomedical Ethics Unit administers that Program, Unit Members teach the two core courses (Bioethics Theory, Bioethics Practicum), electives (Topics in Philosophical Medical Ethics, Bioethics and World Religions, Genetics and Bioethics), and supervise most of the student theses. The Program admits students from the three supporting Faculties (Religious Studies, Law, Medicine) and one Department (Philosophy) which confer on completion of the Program a Master's Degree with a Specialization in Bioethics.
