The Master in Bioethics and Law has a duration of two academic years. During the first year, students are faced with the analysis of the ethical, legal and social aspects of bioethics in general. During the second year, the program focuses on the study of health and biotechnology issues such as euthanasia, AIDS and Big Data for health.

The program’s methodology accommodates to the organization necessities of each participant, regardless of their professional and geographical situation and regardless also of their scope of interest. Throughout the duration of the program, the Master's Academic Team is available to answer questions. It is also recommended to use the Discussion Forum of the Online Campus to solve any doubts on the content of each module. Professional responsibilities can be combined with this program as long as students have a constant weekly dedication to the Master.

After each unit of the program, students must face an online assessment on the unit’s content. Each unit consists of specific topic analysis materials and is always accompanied by self-assessment exercises that allow for keeping track of the learning process.


Sessions will be held from 1st February to 12th February 2021 on work days.
