¿Qué aprenderé?


The Bioethics & Society course allows you to study these questions through a unique interdisciplinary approach drawing on concepts, theories, and methods from philosophy and the social sciences, in a global health context. This will enable you to understand how bioethics influences the world, and how you can make an impact in the world.

Course detail

The course is taught in the heart of London and close to government, health policy think-tanks, patient advocacy groups, medical and scientific societies, and the private health sector. We offer a unique ‘real-world’ approach to bioethics, allowing students to understand the social and political contexts in which bioethical controversies arise and proposed solutions are developed. In the course of their studies, students are equipped with essential knowledge and skills to make a contribution to resolving bioethical problems. In addition, internship opportunities enable students to gather practical insights and to build professional networks.

Teaching and assessment

We will use a delivery method that will ensure students have a rich, exciting experience from the start. Face to face teaching will be complemented and supported with innovative technology so that students also experience elements of digital learning and assessment. The department assesses students on a combination of essays, written examinations (open book), oral presentations and the dissertation. The nature of assessment varies by module.

Career prospects

Graduates from this course have gone onto the following destinations: Policy consultation (e.g. Nuffield Council on Bioethics, King’s Fund, UK Biobank Ethics & Governance Council), National and international NGOs (e.g. disease charities such as Cancer Research UK or British Lung Foundation, Council on Health Research and Development, Gates Foundation), Government (e.g. Department of Health, Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority, Health Research Authority, Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology), Hospitals (e.g. clinical ethicist), Private sector e.g. Pharmaceutical companies, Leadership positions in health care (for trained professionals) and Academic work in bioethics or sociology (e.g. our PhD programme in Social Science, Health & Medicine)
