Columbia University's School of Continuing Education is pleased to announce a new Master of Science in Bioethics which, pending approval by the University Senate, plans to accept the first class beginning in fall 2010.
The M.S. in Bioethics will provide students with the training to work professionally on issues in bioethics, and will ground them in historical, philosophical, legal, and social science approaches and models for addressing bioethics. It will prepare students to work in various capacities within this new and ever-growing field, and will include a concentration in global bioethics – the first of its kind in the United States.
The bioethics program is appropriate for recent undergraduates who plan to work in health care professions and are interested in bioethical issues, dual-degree graduate students and mid-career professionals in health care or related fields. The program will enable students to draw on the extraordinary resources of the University, including the College of Physicians and Surgeons, the Mailman School of Public Health, the Schools of Law, Nursing and International and Public Affairs, and the Arts and Sciences.
Our upcoming information session is the perfect opportunity to meet the faculty and learn more about the program.
