At present, the range of possibilities for technical and technological intervention on life has been significantly expanded, so it is increasingly necessary to open spaces for interdisciplinary reflection on the limits and implications regarding the care and quality of life that such an intervention entails.

The objective of the program is to train suitable, competent and coherent masters in the field of bioethics, in order to promote processes of scientific, social and human transformation from different professional and personal tasks.

We develop our program in four face-to-face and independent cycles, offering our students the possibility of strengthening their knowledge in bioethics based on research and applied practice.
