MA, PGDip and PGCert

Available to study anywhere in the world

This MA is based on an established programme developed in collaboration with leading human rights activists to provide training for future human rights professionals.

The cutting-edge content looks at human rights issues from a practical perspective as well as a theoretical and legal one. We offer a wide range of elective modules. The topics address emerging issues in human rights, such as the impact of environmental destruction on human rights; human rights and the Sustainable Development Goals; or cultural genocide.

Note: this course was previously referred to as: Understanding and Securing Human Rights.
