Course content

There are more slaves alive today than at any point in history. Around the world, nearly 46 million people are forced to work against their will for no pay.

Taught by academic and practitioner experts, this internationally recognised course is the first of its kind in the world. It will provide you with the academic grounding of the study of contemporary slavery as well as comprehensive training on how best to achieve the liberation and social reintegration of those in slavery.

As this is a distance-learning course, the majority of content is taught online with two face-to-face modules at Nottingham, allowing you to connect with the programme and other students from across the globe.
