Issues such as health care reform, rising costs for treatment and disparities in quality and availability of care have led to increased awareness of ethics in health care. The Master of Science in Health Care Ethics is an interdisciplinary program that explores history, philosophy, politics, economics, the law and more to study the challenges and complexities of contemporary bioethics.
