The main objective of the Master of Science in Bioethics (MBIO) is to train highly qualified students for research work or professional activities in the domain of bioethics, an interdisciplinary field that studies value questions that arise in health care, public health and biomedical research.
What is the Master of Bioethics all about?
The Master of Bioethics is a one year advanced master's programme which is coordinated by the Centre for Biomedical Ethics and Law (CBMER) at KU Leuven.
The learning environment is characterized by a small student population, which is composed of an international and interdisciplinary group of individuals who have already finished a master programme. This fosters a continuous exchange of experiences and cultural perspectives. In order to prepare students to adopt a critical and scientific attitude towards ethical questions, education is as much as possible research-driven.
This Master’s programme consists of a series of core bioethics courses, a research component, and a series of electives (60 ECTS) including:
- Ethics and Law in Biomedical Research (3 ECTS)
- Public Health Ethics and Ethics in Health Policy (4 ECTS)
- Ethical Issues in End-of-life Care (4 ECTS)
- Foundations of Bioethics (4 ECTS)
- Human Genetics, Ethics and Policy (4 ECTS)
- Law and Health Care (3 ECTS)
- Clinical Bioethics Training (4 ECTS)
Students who enroll in this Master’s programme will have the opportunity to specialise and develop the following core skills:
