The University of Sydney Bioethics program provides a comprehensive overview of the field of bioethics through interdisciplinary coursework at postgraduate level.
Core units cover philosophical, sociological, and legal approaches to bioethics. Students can also pursue areas of special interest in bioethics, such as biotechnology, clinical ethics, research ethics, public health ethics, health law and mental health ethics.
The program provides a stimulating and diverse environment for learning. The academics are all active researchers with backgrounds in medicine, health law, philosophy, sociology and public health, and the program attracts students from a wide variety of professional and academic backgrounds across the health professions, the health sciences, and the humanities and social sciences.
Courses are offered in a variety of formats to suit students who have other demands on their time. All units of study are offered both on campus (if minimum attendance numbers are met) and via distance learning.
Please note this degree is not available to complete full time in Semester 2 due to the unit BETH5101 being only offered in Semester 1. This course is not available to international student visa holders.
