The M.A. in Bioethics is offered by the Faculty of Theology at the University of Malta.
Offered on a part-time basis, this programme of study is intended to foster a culture respectful of bioethics by enabling a systematic and critical understanding of the theoretical foundations of this area, its methodology, and other themes such as: suffering and palliative care; law and policy; edges of human life and the best interests of the child; research ethics; justice and resource allocation; emerging European values; neuroethics and psychiatry; and genetics.
The M.A. in Bioethics also aims to encourage research in this area and empower students for ethical decision and policy-making relevant to their professional practices. It is recommended for healthcare professionals and administrators, social workers, lawyers, philosophers, educators, psychologists and pastoral ministers.
