Georgetown’s mission of educating “people for others” with a capacity for ethics engaged in the real world makes the Institute a central part of campus intellectual life. We support learning opportunities at all levels: from undergraduate and graduate to post-doctoral and professional.

Undergraduate Opportunities

The KIE supports opportunities for undergraduates including a minor, internships, an award-winning Bioethics Bowl team, and the Bioethics Research Showcase, a juried exhibition of student work.

Graduate-level Opportunities

Our scholars work closely with Georgetown’s Department of Philosophy to support a variety of graduate degrees that allow advanced work in bioethics. Institute faculty are actively involved in student recruitment, dissertation mentoring, and job placement.

Renowned Continuing Education

From our groundbreaking Intensive Bioethics Course to our community Conversations in Bioethics, our faculty and staff are at the forefront of continuing and professional education in practical ethics.
