Masters of Bioethics – Case Western Reserve University


Case Western University in Cleveland, OH offers a Masters in Bioethics. 

An MA in Bioethics can be helpful in gaining admission to professional or graduate schools.  For students who are unclear about their career choice, this program is helpful as it allows for exploring different paths by taking electives across the University, as well as interacting with interdisciplinary faculty, including physicians, lawyers, social scientists, and philosophers.  This program focuses on providing students with an insider’s view of ethics in the field through clinical rotations and practicums.  The theoretical foundations discussed in class are enriched by experiences at hospitals and small group discussions.

Case Western Reserve University also offers a variety of joint degree opportunities that may be of interest, including programs with law, medicine, nursing, social work, and public health. The knowledge and experience gained through the Bioethics program can enrich your understanding of difficult issues as you continue the pursuit of an MPH, MSW, MD, JD, or PhD.
