The Bioethics program of Loyola Marymount University was created to respond to the many ethical challenges presented by the life sciences and health care in contemporary society.


Balancing a challenging liberal arts and sciences curriculum with a commitment to social justice, the master’s program in Bioethics from Loyola Marymount University:

  • Invites students to reflect systematically on contemporary issues in bioethics and healthcare from a variety of disciplinary perspectives.
  • Engages students in the critical analysis of bioethical topics through the interplay between ethical theory and professional practice.


A traditional full-time schedule is two courses per semester, and two in the summer, to finish the degree in twenty-one months. An intensive twelve- or fifteen-month track is available for qualified candidates. In general, we follow a cohort system -- but there are flexible start dates.
