Welcoming Applications for the MA in Bioethics!

As a new program within the Division of Bioethics, the MA in Bioethics started in Autumn 2016, and a growing number of students are now active within the program. Applications to begin in AU, SP, or SU terms are welcome. The MA is offered as a distance-based, online program. For more information visit https://online.osu.edu/program/master-arts-bioethics or contact Courtney Thiele (Thiele.23@osu.edu).

In addition to the MA, OSU graduate and professional students may be interested in the Graduate Minor in Bioethics. The Graduate Minor is also offered as an online program and requires 12 credits (6 core; 6 elective) from BIOETHC courses.
