The Master of Bioethics degree from Johns Hopkins University is a new collaborative program of the Johns Hopkins Berman Institute of Bioethics and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. 


An innovative, interdisciplinary, and cross-divisional graduate program, the goal the Master of Bioethics degree from Johns Hopkins University is to prepare students from diverse individual and professional backgrounds for the bioethics challenges of professional and civic life.

The rigorous pursuit of human wellbeing through health care and research has resulted in tremendous gains, locally and globally, for the benefit of individuals and populations. From the first ventilator to the first vaccine, such scientific and technological discoveries have been used to prolong life and alleviate human suffering while advancing health-related knowledge. These advancements, however, often present challenging ethical questions — for individuals and society — about appropriate use, access, safety, and rights and obligations, among many others.

Graduates of the MBE program will be equipped to drive the responsible pursuit of new knowledge, new approaches to considering society’s thorniest issues, and new ways of improving health to further progress in science and technology, the humanities and arts, and public health and medicine.
