Bioethics MA students have a number of options. One option is to do the traditional MA program without an area of concentration. Students who opt for the traditional program are eligible to select from approved electives offered throughout the University. Another option is to do the MA program with an area of concentration--Research Ethics Concentration; Medicine, Society and Culture Concentration. Each area of concentration has its own requirements and elective choices.
Research ethics concentration is designed to explore ethical issues in research in depth through course work, direct observation, and working with research regulatory professionals.
The Medicine, Society, and Culture concentration provides students with a unique, interdisciplinary approach to exploring fundamental questions involving concepts of illness and well-being--and, in turn, how understanding of these terms varies across communities, countries, cultures, professions, and more.
