Course Summary

This course will help you to gain the in-depth knowledge to champion international human rights practices amid a backdrop of mounting political, economic, social, legal, ethical and environmental challenges. Through lectures, independent research and group activities, you will formulate your own principled and reflective positions on these issues, and develop your confidence as you give presentations and engage with your course peers in discussions. This course will complement an undergraduate degree in a related discipline such as politics or law, adding a specialism to your existing expertise. If your degree is in an unrelated subject, it could also act as a conversion course, helping you to forge a new career in this highly rewarding and dynamic area.

Your future career is our business. That's why we offer further study opportunities across all our subject areas. Our postgraduate courses are a great way to enhance the skills you have already learnt, benefit from our links with industry and give you a CV that will catch the eye of employers.
