The Duke Master’s in Bioethics & Science Policy teaches students how to identify, analyze, and propose solutions to myriad complex issues at the intersection of science, technology, ethics, and policy. Our curriculum is distinct in its focus on bioethics and science policy, rather than bioethics or medical ethics alone. Today’s world of rapid progress in the sciences and technology has seen an increased demand for professionals with expertise in the ethical and policy implications of an increasingly broad range of scientific and tech areas. Our broader focus provides a unique education, opens more opportunities to graduating students, and prepares students to meet an ever-growing need in society.
the Duke Science & Society Leadership Award will be made to outstanding students who demonstrate great potential to become leaders in making scientific advancements and technological innovations more accessible, just, and better integrated into society.
