How should we think about moral and ethical issues related to healthcare, scientific research, and emerging technology? The Master of Arts/Bioethics from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (TEDS) will provide you with the ethical and theological understanding you need to approach these questions with skill and care. Our program will equip you to work in healthcare, science, law, advocacy, clergy, and more.
We offer the MA in Bioethics in several flexible delivery formats. Complete the program in person or online (with one or two weeklong summer courses). Through the research and annual conference at Trinity’s Center for Bioethics & Human Dignity, you will be exposed to the most recent research in the field of Bioethics and have opportunities to network with professionals. Learn to engage with real-world ethical issues in a thoughtful and compassionate manner at TEDS.
