Learn more about the New York University Bioethics Program at our upcoming open house on March 28! To find out more information or to RSVP visit our events page.

Since its launch in 2007, the New York University Center for Bioethics has promoted a broad conception of bioethics encompassing both environmental and health ethics through conferences, workshops, public lectures, and graduate courses. Bioethics Masters students take courses from leading bioethicists as well from professors in the fields of dentistry, education, law, medicine, philosophy, public health, public service, and others.

The degree consists of 32 credits composed of required core courses, a set of electives and a practicum. The core courses provide fundamental knowledge in environmental and health ethics while the elective courses allow students to specialize in their areas of interest. The culmination of the program is the practicum which provides students the opportunity to apply their acquired knowledge by interning at an organization in the field of health care or the environment. The degree can be completed within a twelve-month period of two semesters and a summer session or on a part-time basis. Students may enter the program in either the fall or spring semester.
