Study Abroad

While the Master of Arts in Bioethics degree program has no formal study abroad requirement as part of its curriculum, GPH understands the importance of gaining real-world, global experience. That is why we offer numerous opportunities for intersession courses abroad that are open to all GPH students – including you!

What Are Intersession Courses?

Intersession courses are designed to bring students to one of NYU’s global campus sites to study a topic, both with NYU faculty and with faculty from the host university. Intersession courses are open to all GPH students, and they typically run for several weeks at a time.

An example of a very popular intersession course is taught by Perry Halkitis on the subject of HIV/AIDs research. The course takes place in London for a few weeks every January, and students gain a broader perspective on not only the perception of HIV/AIDS, but also the perception of what/who is a considered a "minority" population in diverse cultures.

Are you ready to enroll in one of the world’s first programs designed to think critically about pressing bioethical, medical and environmental issues? Apply to the Master of Arts in Bioethics today!

The Center for Bioethics

The foundation of the MA in Bioethics degree is the NYU Center for Bioethics, launched in September 2007 with a Chair endowed by Dr. Arthur Zitrin, who for over 40 years was a prime mover in ethics education at the NYU Medical Center.
