Course summary

This course focuses on the social factors which affect human rights, examining human behaviour, relationships and society. This course is taught in collaboration with Kingston University's new Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice Practice. You will engage with current issues as a researcher, activist, campaigner and blogger, under the supervision of human rights and social justice specialists at the centre. The course has flexible modules so you can study a combination of politics, sociology, criminology and history to suit your own areas of interests. You will develop comprehensive skills in research, numeracy, data collection and analysis, teamwork and communication. Kingston's proximity to central London enables you to participate in lectures, workshops, talks and political events in the capital and expand your knowledge beyond the classroom. Coursework is designed to be achieved within the set amount of learning hours for each module and is appropriate to the level of study. We encourage a professional work ethic, which includes how to manage your time.

A range of additional support is available to students who require it, particularly through the Faculty's Centre for Academic Support and Enhancement. Our courses are carefully constructed to allow you to build knowledge and skills progressively during your degree programme. We constantly update our curriculum to ensure that it covers the latest developments in your subject area, including the research and professional experience that your tutors bring to the course. Our course teams also draw on the wealth of experience provided by our professional contacts and highly successful alumni who feed into the design of our courses and provide master classes and workshops to enrich your learning. On this course you will gain transferable skills and expertise in sociological research and the practice of human rights. You will be prepared for a range of careers including working at campaign groups, human rights organizations, the civil service, consultancies, media, or to continue with postgraduate study.
