About the Institute

About Us - Bluff Panorama

For the past several years, Loyola Marymount University has been on the forefront of bioethics education within the Los Angeles community. Our distinctive Jesuit Catholic identity places us at the crossroad of interesting, yet challenging, intersections: faith and reason, religious and secular ethics, church and public realm, academic learning and social engagement.

The Graduate Programs are ideal for students oriented to doctoral programs in bioethics and professionals interested in more practical training. The LMU Bioethics Institute reaches out to a diverse constituency that includes:

  • Physicians
  • Nurses
  • Researchers
  • Social workers
  • Chaplains
  • Hospital administrators

We welcome all spiritual, cultural and ethnic experiences.

Our commitment is to challenging curricular offerings at the graduate and undergraduate levels, expanding research initiatives for interdisciplinary collaboration of faculty across various departments, and renewing our involvement in the larger community through public lectures, symposia, and a critical contribution to the most controversial ethical issues of the day.
