Deze opleiding

The post-initial Erasmus Mundus Master of Bioethics, taught at three European universities (Belgium, the Netherlands, Italy), has been designed to offer an advanced education into health care ethics.

With three European universities (KU Leuven, Radboud University Nijmegen and the University of Padova, Italy) the master of bioethics offers a common, post-academic, complementary education in health care ethics with an effective and condensed learning trajectory. The master's programme has been designed to offer an advanced education into health care ethics, thereby specifically paying attention to international bioethics with a special attention to European philosophical as well as theological traditions in this area. The education is based on the research in health care ethics as is undertaken in the participating departments and institutes.
The Master of Bioethics has been selected as an Erasmus Mundus master course. The Erasmus Mundus programme is a co-operation and mobility programme in the field of higher education which promotes the European Union as a centre of excellence in learning around the world. It supports European top-quality Masters Courses and enhances the visibility and attractiveness of European higher education in third countries. It also provides EU-funded scholarships.

Waarom aan de Radboud Universiteit?

This is the only Master in Bioethics taught in English with a continental aproach to bioethics. It has therefore a wider theoretical perspective than the analytical, applied ethics approach dominant in the Anglo-Saxon atmosphere.
The dedicated staff, the international audience and the highly interactive teaching make it an unique and valuable learning experience. In addition, it is possible to combine work and studies making this initially one-year programme longer.
