Bioethics without Boundaries
Tackling the “big questions” through an innovative, interdisciplinary lens, the intercollege Penn State Bioethics Program focuses on ethical and policy issues arising in a broad range of arenas.
These include the following:
Drawing on a diverse array of Penn State faculty with a wide range of experiences and expertise, the Program offers a pioneering, cross-disciplinary curriculum that includes:
- an undergraduate minor in Bioethics and Medical Humanities;
- a graduate minor in Bioethics at both the master’s and doctoral levels; and
- the first graduate degree of its kind in the United States, a Dual-Title Ph.D. Program in Bioethics.
In addition, the Program convenes a weekly Bioethics Colloquium, and hosts various conferences and seminars that bring together leading experts from Penn State and their peers at other institutions.
