Master’s in Bioethics at St. Thomas University

Taught by Fr. Alfred Cioffi, from the Archdiocese of Miami

A message from Fr. Alfred Cioffi about the program:

I teach fulltime at St. Thomas University (STU), our diocesan university. Seven years ago, I launched an innovative and exciting program: Master’s in Bioethics -taught, of course, from the Catholic perspective, which is in contrast with the prevailing secular cultural values that surround us. In other words, the program is based on a Judeo-Christian Theological Anthropology.

This program addresses all the major bioethical issues of our time; at the beginning and end of human life, in healthcare, and with regards to care for creation (environmental bioethics). Many of our parishioners have questions about: in vitro fertilization, physician assisted death, nutrition and hydration at the end of life, natural family planning, gender transitioning, puberty blockers, blessing of homosexual unions, climate change, global warming, ethics of vaccines, genetically engineered viruses, when to extubate a loved one in the hospital, etc., etc. Our MS in Bioethics at STU covers all of these in detail, and many more.
