About our Graduate Programs

For Graduate Program page   The graduate programs in bioethics at Loyola Marymount University are distinct programs of study leading to a Master of Arts degree or a Graduate Certificate in Bioethics. The programs seek to provide graduate educational opportunities that will enable students to reflect systematically on contemporary issues in bioethics through a challenging liberal arts and sciences curriculum with a commitment to social justice.

The Master of Arts in Bioethics is a multidisciplinary program that facilitates learning and thinking from an interdisciplinary perspective. It fosters the critical analysis of bioethical topics through the interplay between moral theory and medical practice. An MA in Bioethics can prepare students for doctoral study at another institution or compliment other graduate work in fields such as Philosophy, Law, Medicine, Theology and Spiritual Care.

 The Graduate Certificate in Bioethics program prepares individuals to deal with the complexities of bioethical issues arising in clinical practice and to become leaders in decision-making about bioethical problems in their respective institutions. A Graduate Certificate in Bioethics can augment clinical practice and prepare healthcare professionals (e.g. physicians, nurses, clinical social workers, pastoral care personnel, hospital administrators, etc.) to serve on a medical center bioethics committee.
