Course summary

The course explores questions and perspectives on human rights, gender, and social exclusion - examining how rights are understood and put into practice around the world, and identifying the barriers that prevent rights from becoming a reality. This degree aims to enable students to specialise in subjects related to international minority rights law, equipping them with comprehensive knowledge of the international and regional legal regimes governing minority and indigenous rights, through critical assessment of the efficacy of human rights and sustainable development frameworks.

You will deepen and broaden your knowledge of law as an academic subject through acquiring systematic understanding of legal processes, methods and concepts of the social and political context in which legal processes take place and of appropriate theoretical conceptions of law. By maximising your academic potential potential and refining your problem-solving skills in a transnational context through the acquisition of systematic and critical understanding of complex legal, economic, cultural, ethnic, religious, ethical and political issues informing international minority rights law you will enhance your professional development and horizons. The research and writing skills you gain will be transferable to a variety of professional sectors, including the legal profession, policymaking, corporate sector, governmental bodies or academia.

This course equips students with skills across several legal disciplines and opens career possibilities in public and private bodies as practitioners or advocates, working in sectors concerning public law, family law, discrimination, immigration, housing, actions against the police, employment, investment or business law. It is aimed particularly at students who are interested in human rights-related work and/or who wish to influence policies to ensure the enjoyment of human rights by members of minority groups and indigenous peoples at national, regional and international level. Many have also continued their higher education studies via a PhD. Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.
