About the MS in Public Health Ethics

The Master of Science (MS) in Public Health Ethics will equip students with the knowledge and skills needed to identify, understand and analyze ethical issues in public health; to disseminate new knowledge through the scholarly literature; and to work towards real-world solutions to ethical issues.

Students will receive in-depth training in ethical theory and decision-making and the ethical dimensions of public health research, practice and policy. Students will also receive training in public health systems and research methods.

The program will prepare students to serve as thought-leaders in the field of public health and for job positions requiring expertise in health ethics. It will also serve as a stepping-stone for students wishing to pursue doctoral-level education in ethics.
