Description The Master's Specialization in Bioethics is an interdisciplinary program that emphasizes both the conceptual and practical aspects of Bioethics with students applying through the Faculties of Law, Medicine, Religious Studies and the Department of Philosophy. Students entering through Law are bound by the requirements of the Faculty of Law's LL.M. Thesis program. The Master's Specialization in Bioethics ordinarily takes at least two years to complete, although some students have completed it in 18 months. The first year is devoted to course work (including a clinical practicum), and the second year is devoted to a Master's thesis on a topic in bioethics that also satisfies the requirements of the base discipline. Students graduate with a Master's degree from the Faculty of their base discipline (M.A., M.Sc. or LL.M.) with a specialization in bioethics.
