Are dual degree options available?

Students enrolled in the M.D. program at the NYU School of Medicine may apply for the M.D./M.A. in Bioethics program, which allows students to complete both degrees in five years of full-time study. Medical Students in the dual degree program usually take a year off between their third and fourth medical school years to complete all or most of the coursework and fulfill the Practicum requirement for the Bioethics Masters degree. Any remaining Practicum coursework can be completed concurrently with their 4th year clinical clerkships.

How much does the program cost? Is financial aid available?

To learn more about how much the Master of Arts in Bioethics costs and what financial aid is available, please visit GPH’s Financial Aid page. Note that there is a special competitive scholarship fund for medical students. For more information about these scholarships, please contact the Director, Matthew Liao, PhD at bioethics@nyu.edu. Decisions regarding tuition assistance will be made by May 15th on a first-come, first-served basis.

Is housing available?

NYU offers an extremely limited amount of housing to graduate students. The program expects that the vast majority of graduate students will secure off-campus housing, which is generally cheaper and more flexible than NYU housing. The NYU Office of Off-Campus Housing can help newly admitted students navigate the New York City rental market.
