Bioethics & Society at King’s College – Making an Impact in the World

What is Bioethics? Why should you be interested?

Bioethics is the study of ethical and social challenges that surround the translation of developments in biomedicine and neuroscience into the public realm. From the ethics of reproductive technologies, to research on children and vulnerable populations, to human enhancement, to end of life decision-making – bioethical questions matter to us all throughout the course of our lives.

The programme is taught in the heart of London at King’s College Strand Campus, with immediate access to King’s hospitals and laboratories, and close to government, health policy think-tanks, patient advocacy groups, medical and scientific societies, and the private health sector.

We offer a unique ‘real-world’ approach to bioethics, allowing students to understand the social and political contexts in which bioethical controversies arise and proposed solutions are developed. In the course of their studies, students are equipped with essential knowledge and skills to make a contribution to resolving bioethical problems. In addition, internship opportunities enable students to gather practical insights and to build professional networks.

Lectures and seminars are taught by internationally recognized faculty who consult with the World Health Organization, the Nuffield Council on Bioethics, and the UK Parliamentary Office of Science & Technology, among others.

A rich programme of guest lectures and seminars within the Department of Social Science, Health & Medicine and the College, including the KCL / UCL Joint Bioethics Colloquium and the Work in Progress Seminar Series, enhance students’ learning experience.
