Description McGill University offers specialized education in bioethics to graduate students in the Faculties of Medicine, Religious Studies and Law, and the Department of Philosophy. The Master's Degree Specialization in Bioethics is an interdisciplinary academic program that emphasizes both the conceptual and the practical aspects of bioethics. Admission to the Master's Specialization in Bioethics takes place in two stages. First, the applicant is considered for graduate study by selecting one of the four base disciplines: the Faculty of Religious Studies, the Department of Philosophy, the Faculty of Law or the Faculty of Medicine (through the Division of Experimental Medicine). Second, the applicants recommended for admission to the Bioethics Master's Specialization are then considered by the Admissions Committee of the Bioethics Specialization, which makes the final selection. The Committee may call the applicants for an interview.
