M.A. in Human Rights

The MA in Human Rights is for students who are committed to social justice and the equality of all people and who have the desire to be leaders in the cause of Human Rights, which is especially urgent in today’s troubled world.

“Human Rights” refers to the basic rights of dignity and equality that belong to all human beings, regardless of gender, sex, age, sexual orientation, religious belief, or any other status as established through the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. People who have the knowledge and expertise to promote human rights and understanding are increasingly in demand in a world that is in desperate need of these skills.

Students take courses in areas such as Civil Rights, Women’s Rights, Children’s Rights, Sexual Identity and Gender Rights, and Refugee Rights, among others, and can complete the program in 2 years.
