Sussex is a world leader in the study of human rights. You’ll be taught by experts in the fields of anthropology, international relations, law and geography.

You have the opportunity to pursue your interests, exploring human rights in relation to women, children, migrants, minorities, fair trade, the environment and international crimes. You’ll strengthen your analytical, research and presentation abilities, and gain specialist knowledge.

If you already have experience in the field of human rights, this course is an opportunity to reflect on that experience and develop new research skills. If you're new to the field, the dissertation with placement is an invaluable opportunity to prepare for a career in this area.
