Pope John Paul II Bioethics Center

Master In Theology With A Concentration In Bioethics

Offered in conjunction with the National Catholic Bioethics Center

Program Overview

Working in conjunction with the National Catholic Bioethics Center (NCBC), Holy Apostles College and Seminary is pleased to offer a Master of Theology with a concentration in Bioethics through our Online Learning Program. 

Holy Apostles and the NCBC have collaborated to provide a unique educational opportunity for professionals and students interested in receiving general or specialized graduate training in the growing field of Catholic bioethics.

One result of this collaborative effort is a one-year sequence of graduate-level courses in bioethics available through Holy Apostles' Online Learning Program. This sequence of courses satisfies 9 graduate level credits and can be applied toward the concentration in Bioethics in Holy Apostles' Master of Theology degree program. Additionally, students pursuing this 9 credit sequence may also qualify for the Certification in Health Care Ethics, a professionally recognized certificate offered directly by the NCBC.

This 9-credit sequence of courses in Catholic Bioethics will be taught by Father Tadeusz (Tad) Pacholczyk, Ph.D., who is the Director of Education at the NCBC and is recognized as one of the leading experts in the field of Catholic bioethics. Father Tad is concurrently an adjunct member of the faculty at Holy Apostles College & Seminary.

To complete the concentration in Bioethics, students will be required to take one additional bioethics course offered through Holy Apostles to meet the required 12 credits for an area of concentration in the Master's Degree Program.
