Effective June 30th, 2010 the Program in Health Care Ethics will be on academic hiatus
Understanding health care choices in a rapidly changing world
The Graduate Certificate in Bioethics provides an opportunity for graduate students and working professionals in the health care fields to gain knowledge and skills in the specialized area of bioethics. The program seeks to teach students the core competencies called for by the Americal Society for Bioethics and Humanities. These objectives include (1) ethical assessment skills, (2) process skills, and (3) interpersonal skills. This program provides a specialization that can be productively used to enhance one's current career or to supplement work in another degree. Courses are offered in evening, weekend, intensive, and web-based formats in addition to traditional class meetings. Students must have a B (3.0) or better average in each course to earn the certificate and all course work must be completed within 5 years of matriculation.
Certificate students can combine coursework with other degree programs but must apply for each program separately. The joint MPH/Graduate Certificate Program can be completed in the same number of units as an MPH alone, but does require separate application to both programs.
A total of 14 graduate credits are required. Students must complete the 8 credit core as well as 6 credits in elective classes.
MPH Program at the School of Public Health.
