The Biology and Bioethics major integrates the humanities and sciences by examining the moral questions at the intersection of biology, medicine, law, public health, policy and ethics. Students are prepared for success within a variety of science-related careers, healthcare-related professional programs such as medicine, dentistry, and pharmacy, as well as Masters and Doctoral-level graduate programs.
Committed faculty make a difference in each student’s education by providing one-on-one interactions, ensuring students have access to the latest health care innovations and research methods relevant to the world we live in today, and with an eye on future innovations.
The AJU learning environment extends beyond the classroom. Preceptorships, internship and other practical learning experiences connect our campus to the community and balance scientific and ethical theory with tangible action. Opportunities for off-campus learning include both clinical and research preceptorships at area hospitals such as UCLA, USC, and Cedars-Sinai, as well as at other local area health centers.
AJU’s right-sized classes, mentors and professors guide students to begin, follow and finish a well-defined educational and professional path leading to a successful career.
