About

We offer a certification in Bioethics at Columbia University. Increasingly, practitioners in medicine, law, and research must understand and make decisions on complex ethical and moral dilemmas related to advances in biology, biotechnology, and biomedicine.

Overview

Solutions require specialized and cross-disciplinary knowledge spanning ethics, law, society, culture, public policy, philosophy, religion, economics, history, and even language.

Key Features 

  • Columbia University’s non-degree, online Bioethics Certification program prepares students to address these challenges through an innovative learning experience featuring live webinars, multimedia, and collaborative course activities.

Programme Structure

  • The specially designed online curriculum gives a sophisticated analysis of the historical, philosophical, legal, social scientific, and practical aspects of bioethics.
  • The program features select courses from the Master of Science in Bioethics program. It has been tailored to advance students’ knowledge and skills, using a multidisciplinary approach that draws on medicine, law, philosophy, history, sociology, religion, and other fields.
  • Courses focus on key areas including the history and philosophy of bioethics, clinical ethics, research ethics, law and bioethics, and neuroethics.
