Program Details

Headlines about health care reform and disparities in the availability and quality of health care have led to an increased awareness of health care ethics issues. The online Master's in Health Care Ethics from Creighton University educates students about the complex issues that make up bioethics, a field that enjoys few black-and-white answers. Program outcomes include: 

  • An increased familiarity with the role of ethics in health care 
  • An in-depth understanding of the various issues and factors involved in this field 
  • Enhanced ability to explain, justify, analyze and write about ethical decisions in health care 

Coursework reflects Creighton's Jesuit, Catholic values by examining quality of life and survival in vulnerable populations that may receive lower levels of care as a result of socioeconomic status, race, and ethnicity, among other factors. With a master's degree in Health Care Ethics, students will be able to contribute to discussions and policy making on ethics in the health care setting and educate their peers. It is an ideal degree for those who work in health care or related fields and want to become more effective in their current roles, such as physicians, nurses, hospital administrators, public health managers and chaplains.
