Course summary

This programme was designed with the assistance of human rights experts as well as our internal staff at the University. With this combined input, you will gain unique insights into human rights around the world and will advance your understanding of factors that influence them. The programme has been carefully coordinated to align with the competencies required for today’s international job market.

The University of Aberdeen is known for attracting world-class teaching staff with international experience in their specialist subjects. You will have access to first rate teaching from globally respected staff, such as Programme Director Dr Mátyás Bódig, Director of Postgraduate Taught Programmes at the University, as well as Programme Coordinator for LLM in Human Rights. He is a founding member of the Centre for Citizenship, Civil Society and Rule of Law at the University of Aberdeen.

With a strong focus on law and politics, Human Rights at the University of Aberdeen explores social and economic rights such as education, health, housing and family rights. Your studies will include the international law of conflicts, how human rights impacts on criminal law and how the rules of law develop over time as social and political change occurs - all enabling you to develop a clearer understanding of human rights in today's society around the world. You will have the opportunity to study subjects such as International Human Rights Law, The Politics of Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law.

This LLM attracts a range of students from a variety of fields – from international relations, to oil and gas programmes and those with a background in international law. The flexible programme means you can choose courses that allow you to explore the areas that interest you. A former student from Germany used the course to secure an internship with the International Court, afterwards going on to work for the international NGO Human Rights Watch.
