NYU’s Master of Arts degree in Bioethics is a major focus of the NYU Center for Bioethics, which is one of the first programs in the world to promote a broad conception of bioethics encompassing both medical and environmental ethics.
Based in the College of Global Public Health, the M.A. Program has its own full-time core faculty who have extensive experience in bioethics.
The Program also draws upon faculty affiliates from top-ranked departments of Philosophy, Psychology, Anthropology, and Environmental Medicine, as well as from the School of Medicine, the Wagner School of Public Service, and the School of Law.
Through our unique, one-on-one student advising and small class sizes, students develop concepts and analytical skills that enable them to think critically about pressing bioethical and environmental issues.
As a culminating project, students complete a practicum in health and environmental organizations and projects in the greater New York area and abroad. Students have worked at the President's Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues, the American Medical Association, the National Institutes of Health, the Pan American Health Organization, and Mumbai’s King Edward Memorial Hospital.
