Course content

Available as a One Year Masters or a Two Year (with Professional Practice) Masters. This course is a new and innovative masters to support and develop your knowledge of human rights policy, practice and the international human rights instruments. Our approach is applying social science knowledge and analytical approaches to secure the realisation of rights in practice in everyday settings - from public services to civil society organisations or roles in government and public administration.

Across the modules you'll engage in learning, building your knowledge and analytical skills through exploring the global political and institutional contexts that inhibit and support the advancement of equality and the realisation of rights; the dynamism and activism of social movements for change, informed by perspectives on the elimination of discrimination, poverty and inequality through the realisation of economic, civil and political rights and citizenship.

The MSc in Human Rights has been developed in line with GCU's mission to provide flexible, lifelong learning opportunities whatever your background or the stage of your life. The course reflects GCU's research themes of social innovation and public policy and social justice, equalities and communities and the institutional commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals.
