Course summary

Summary

Become a skilled professional in the world of human rights promotion and protection by studying at Roehampton. You will gain a critical understanding of the central role that human rights has in current and controversial international debates.

This challenging programme will provide you with a strong knowledge in the complex roles that human rights and international relations have in global issues such as terrorism, struggles for democratic freedoms, genocide, the effects of defence policies, climate change and social justice. You will graduate with the skills you need to succeed in a highly competitive environment for international human rights advocacy and protection.

Our programme will provide you with a strong foundation of knowledge in human rights that draws upon a range of disciplines in law, politics, sociology, history and philosophy. This holistic approach to human rights will enable you to choose a specialisation and tailor your own research project according to your interests.

Gain international experience in the field by taking part in our annual research study trip to learn about the promotion and protection of human rights. Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.
