Course contentThe Graduate Programme - Human Rights (MSc, MLitt, PhD) provides students with the skills and theoretical tools needed to analyse the nature, limits and implementation of human rights in both the international and national context. Students are introduced to philosophical, institutional and, and policy issues in human rights and encouraged to engage with these issues in a critical way. The programme provides exceptional interdisciplinarity by bringing together theoretical and political perspectives on human rights, social scientific research training, and knowledge of policy formation, implementation, and human rights practice in government bodies, international structures, and non-governmental organisations.
