Non-Degree Seeking Students

Every year, the Master of Arts in Bioethics program offers standalone elective courses available to non-degree seeking students and professionals interested in the social and ethical challenges to healthcare, public health and the life sciences.  These courses can be particularly attractive to Emory University employees (including faculty and staff in the Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Public Health) because the Emory University courtesy scholarship can cover all tuition fees.

In order to apply to study one of our standalone courses without being a MA in Bioethics degree student, you will have to apply as a non-degree Laney Graduate School student, details here:

For the Fall 2019 term, the deadline is August 22, 2019.
For the Spring 2020 term, the deadline is January 7, 2020.
For the Summer 2020 term, the deadline is May 12, 2020.

Students who successfully complete these standalone courses may apply to transfer credits to the MA in Bioethics program should they later apply to and be admitted to the MA in Bioethics program.
