BSc (Hons) in Bioethics: Bristol
The Centre for Ethics in Medicine offers a 1-year intercalated BSc (Hons.) in Bioethics. This was amongst the first few courses offered by a UK University, and has been running successfully since 1998. The course is aimed primarily at current undergraduate students, usually drawn from Medicine, who must have completed at least two years of study on their current programme.
What will I study?
The course aims to acquaint students with major trends and theories in bioethics, medical law and ethics more generally. The course will not only ground you in the relevant terminology and concepts, it will also enhance your abilities in thinking through such issues for yourself.
The course involves the acquisition and use of skills in bioethical, philosophical and legal research and argumentation, which students may not yet have had any experience of employing. The tutors make every effort to support students from the start of the programme, so that they can get the most from their studies, and there are various introductory courses and advisory arrangements in place.
