Course summary

This programme offers a unique opportunity for you to gain knowledge about a wide range of equality issues and to think across the dimensions of inequality.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • The programme responds to radical changes in approaches to equalities and human rights in Scotland, the UK and beyond.
  • Taught by a team of specialists from a range of areas of inequality, including gender, race, sexuality, disability and faith, the programme looks at what equality and human rights mean and what practical steps can be taken to achieve them.
  • You will examine the major causes of inequality today and how the idea that certain groups are less equal than others emerged. You will also study what sustains that idea and how these groups are interrelated.
  • If you are interested in going on to study for a PhD, there is a closely-related MRes in Equality and Human Rights which combines a grounding in the subject with advanced research training.

CAREER PROSPECTS

This programme will provide useful background knowledge for careers in areas involving the negotiation of equality and implementation of human rights. This would include work with non-governmental organisations, equality and diversity groups, charities and government.
