Course summary

MA Human Rights and Cultural Diversity is suited to you if you have a interest in this specialised area of study. You acquire a deeper knowledge and understanding of the central issues and debates surrounding the application and justification of human rights within a culturally complex and diverse world.

These problems are legal, social, political and philosophical, and our course reflects this in our multidisciplinary approach. In contrast to our other human rights courses, this MA examines human rights specifically in relation to cultural diversity.

Our interdisciplinary Human Rights Centre is the UK’s leading centre for the study of the theory and practice of international human rights, and has a worldwide reputation for research, teaching and practice. In February 2010, we were awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize in recognition of our work in advancing human rights across the globe.

Your future

Graduates are well placed for careers as a journalist, a policy analyst or researcher, as an official in the United Nations system or as an activist in humanitarian and policy-making non-governmental bodies in the UK and abroad. We also prepare you to undertake further independent research in the field of human rights.

We are first university in the UK to sign a memorandum of understanding with the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR). This creates internship and research opportunities for our postgraduate students and is based on our long-established expertise in international humanitarian law.
