CEDARVILLE UNIVERSITY ANNOUNCES GRADUATE CERTIFICATE IN BIOETHICS
CEDARVILLE, OHIO – Cedarville University announced the launch of a fully online graduate certificate in bioethics program set to begin this fall.
The graduate certificate provides supplemental training in bioethics to college graduates just starting out or already engaged in professional work or postgraduate training.
At a cost of $536 per credit hour, the certificate program offers busy health care professionals, social workers, counselors and even pastors a more accessible alternative to lengthy and expensive graduate programs. In addition, an academic background in science is not required, making the program feasible for professionals from a variety of industries.
According to Dennis Sullivan, M.D., director of the Cedarville University Center for Bioethics, the program will prepare professionals to navigate a pluralistic marketplace laden with ethical dilemmas.
“In a secular pluralistic culture, it’s common for Christian voices to be marginalized. This program teaches normative ethics, giving Christian professionals the tools to enter the marketplace and engage the world,” Sullivan said. “We can be engaged in the marketplace without sacrificing our Christian commitments. This perspective has largely been lacking in the public square, and a nuanced knowledge of bioethics can be helpful in defending the sanctity of human life.”
The 10-credit certificate program is divided into eight-week terms and is designed for part-time completion in one year. The program concludes with a capstone course requiring students to practice the principles developed in the preceding courses, which also prepares students for further study in graduate programs.
