  1. Thanks so much for your response!! Ha funny you say that, those are my two reasons for feeling wary too. But I've heard great things about the school and program Always glad to read another good review!!
  2. This has all been really helpful to hear. I talked to a couple professors last week who actually said the same thing, that a thesis isn't (usually) as important as it seems - or at least it isn't the only good option. Thank you again for your advice!!
  3. Hi all! I wrote this in the Philosophy forum but want to ask here too - I'm hoping you might have some advice/clarity/insight on a decision I'm trying to make. I'll try to make it brief (and hopefully coherent)! I'm applying to Bioethics + MSW programs at the University of Louisville (where those two are already an established dual degree program) and the University of Pittsburgh (which has both degrees but not integrated yet, so I'd do most of it separately). Both programs would take three years. If I were to qualify for in-state tuition (in either state), Louisville would be significant
  4. Thank you so much for your help! That makes a lot of sense, and I want to make sure I get to study under people who are trained in philosophy. Do you mind if I ask you, do you think a program that doesn't have a thesis component (but instead a capstone project - working on active solutions vs research/writing about them) would be strong enough if I wanted to focus on research (or even a PhD) in the future? Everything else about this program seems great and the people I've talked to have been awesome; I'm just not sure how to weigh that against a seemingly less-rigorous curriculum. Thank you ag
  5. Thanks so much for your response!! I really appreciate it, and great to hear from someone who's familiar with Philosophy at Pitt. I'm surprised to hear there's not more overlap there. This may be unwise, but I don't feel too worried about that aspect because my focus is more on the practical side - getting to shadow physicians and really see the application of the theories is what excites me. It looks like only a couple of the UofL professors have PhDs in philosophy, too. Are you saying, though, that having less of a base in philosophy would be an impediment to future research positions?
