Bioethics and Medical Humanities
The Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies with a concentration in Bioethics and Medical Humanities at the University of Louisville is an ancillary degree intended to provide graduates with an enriched ethical knowledge base, preparing them to work in clinical or hospital settings, and to undertake scholarly research or teach in the field of bioethics and medical humanities.
The program will enhance graduates' contextual experience within their primary professional field, for example, law, philosophy, medicine, nursing, dentistry, religious studies, public health, health administration, or veterinary medicine. Degree holders may participate in hospital ethics committees, teach medical ethics and humanities, understand the interaction of religion/spirituality and medicine, or be equipped to interpret issues in bioethics to the general public and the media.
We offer dual degrees with the Brandeis School of Law (JD/MA), the School of Medicine (MD/MA) and the Kent School of Social Work (MSSW/MA).
Fellowships may be available on a competitive basis.
