A masters degree in Human Rights gives candidates a sound foundation in law and policy pertaining to championing human rights. The series of core units that students learn in this program equips them with practical understanding on human rights operations in social, economical, political and environmental contexts. After successful completion of this degree, the student has the knowledge, skills and power to practice in several disciplinary fields like political economy, human geography, history, political science, social policy and sociology.
This program also gives you skills and knowledge which can be used in bargaining for the rights of human beings by using the right legal language and tools. This will also enable you to change the world through strong arguments. For an individual to get that practical aspect of the study, he or she needs to get an internship with any of the international organizations offering students internships. This program will also enable you to undertake scholarly research on human rights issues independently as well as better comprehension of real legal situations. This degree not only enables you to practice in your respective country but also in the international arena.
With the increase in demand of human rights experts especially in law, politics, businesses and social movements, the graduates in this area of study can get employment in several organizations like human rights governmental organizations, both inter-governmental as well as non-governmental human rights groups where their skills, knowledge and experience are needed. Students with strong educational background in education, journalism and any other related profession are better positioned to further their careers by taking this masters degree.
