The pre-registration period for the new edition of the Master in Bioethics and Law is now open (25th edition, 2022-2024)


The pre-registration period for the new edition of the Master in Bioethics and Law of the University of Barcelona (2022-2024) is open.

This year, we celebrate its 25th edition; since 1995, this postgraduate degree, created by Dr. María Casado and co-organized by the Bioethics and Law Observatory (OBD), continues to educate and train its students in the analysis of bioethical issues from an interdisciplinary, plural and secular perspective.
The Master is taught in Spanish and has the support of the UNESCO Chair in Bioethics at the University of Barcelona. The course can be taken remotely, through a virtual campus designed to suit the needs of each student.

In addition, each year a series of face-to-face sessions of great value are organized and condensed into two weeks. These sessions take place at the Faculty of Law of the University of Barcelona between January and February and are of voluntary attendance.

This Master from the University of Barcelona is adapted to 120 ECTS credits (two academic years). The studies will allow you to obtain interdisciplinary training in the study of bioethical issues, forming a framework of reflection in respect for recognized human rights, and acquire solid training for the analysis and decision-making in situations of ethical conflict.

The new edition starts in October 2022 and the pre-registration period is now open. You can check all the required documentation at this link.
