Program Description

As scientific advances become more subtle and nuanced, the need to study their moral implications and responsibilities becomes equally necessary. Our Master of Legal Studies degree in Bioethics delves into the research and practice of, for example, overreaching reproductive technologies, euthanasia, testing on human embryos, and insurance regulations that dehumanize patients. This program provides you with the philosophical, bioethical, and legal nuances to prepare you to engage in the biomedical industry while interacting with the law.
