Duke MA in Bioethics & Science Policy

Duke_logo

Should we use technologies that enhance or alter our brains? Is it ever ethical to clone a human being? How should genetic information be used in law enforcement?

The Duke MA in Bioethics & Science Policy invites students to address these questions and many more. The program is the only one in the US that combines bioethics and science policy to truly prepare students to address the societal impact of advances in the biosciences, medicine, and technology. Students explore cutting-edge developments in such fields as genomics and neuroscience and how scientific advances impact law and policy. Each student works with a mentor throughout the program to create an individualized academic experience.

Please join us to learn more about the MA on Tuesday, September 22, 2015 at noon (EST), for an online information session. The session will explore the MA curriculum, concentrations, practicum opportunities, admissions, financial aid, and the unique and individualized student experience. You can RSVP for the online session here.

If you love science and are fascinated by how it changes – and is changed by –  society, Duke invites you to apply for the Duke MA in Bioethics & Science Policy.
