Course summary

Summary

This two-year, full-time programme is taught in the UK, Sweden and Spain, and will prepare you for an international career in the protection of human rights.

Our programme has a strong emphasis on professional development. This programme is designed for postgraduates who want to make a significant contribution to the human rights agenda internationally with civil society organisations, governments, and the public and private sectors. You will be exposed to legal, political, sociological and anthropological approaches to human rights promotion and protection in a globalised world.

Partners in this programme include the University of Roehampton (London, UK), Göteborgs universitet (Göteborg, Sweden) and Universidad de Deusto (Bilbao, Spain). As well as teaching and research of the highest standards, they offer specialist expertise in human rights law, the rights of indigenous peoples and research methods.

Underpinning the programme is an understanding of human rights practice that goes beyond but does not ignore the law. We will use the development, critique, application and consequences of law to understand human rights practice. By the end of the course, you will have gained a holistic understanding of human rights in a broader social and political context. Central to this programme is a work placement, which may involve working with the organisations of the state, civil society or the corporate sector.

Career options

Students go on to work in national and international government and non-governmental agencies, think tanks and the media.
