Course summary

Overview:

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.

At the centre of the programme is an attention to human rights practice in the areas of gender, childhood, and religion. You will gain a thorough understanding of human rights issues through using an academic multidisciplinary approach and the application of human rights theory and practice in relation to law, sociology, social anthropology, international relations, civil society, and political science.

You will be able to articulate human rights issues from a variety of perspectives, to apply theory from different fields and disciplines, to discuss and assess the strengths and weaknesses of different perspectives and critically evaluate how these perspectives can be used by different actors, agencies and stakeholders.

You will study organisational analysis to ensure that the organisations through which you pursue human rights work are better managed. This element of the programme combines class and placement learning, which is central to the programme. The modules in this course will help you develop analytical skills and expertise in human rights perspectives, contexts, organisations, policymaking, and practice.

At Roehampton, you will engage with active researchers who are committed to social justice and have made ground-breaking impacts on society. The Crucible Centre for Human Rights Research is a multidisciplinary research centre conducting research on a range of contemporary issues in the fields of human rights and migration. You will benefit from the number of regular workshops and seminars that the Centre holds as well as being a part of major EU-funded projects and activities.
