Months of entry
Equip yourself with an advanced understanding of the complex laws and principles that arise from working in international human rights, as you prepare for a wide-ranging career in this demanding field.
You will explore the issues of international human rights, including political, economic, social, legal, ethical and environmental challenges. As you develop your knowledge, you will evaluate and apply theories to a range of complex and open-ended problems and scenarios such as whose rights should be protected, by whom and with what mechanisms, while staying mindful of ethical issues.
This course will enable you to tailor your learning to suit your career requirements or personal interests - you could choose to study criminal investigations, torture, non-violent methods during conflict or new security threats to human rights.
You will also enhance your skills in data analysis, budgeting, presentation and interpretation, which will be valuable whether you wish to pursue a career in academic research or international human rights organisations.
