Human Rights

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

Individuals who enjoy helping others and are understanding and compassionate may be interested in studying human rights. Human rights are the privileges inherent to each human being, such as freedom of expression, the right to receive an education, and the right to live and work.

Master in Human Rights and Humanitarian Action

Sciences Po
Campus 2 years September 2017 France Paris

Over the past decades, human rights have known a singular development that upsets the traditional Westphalian order of the world. [+]

Master in Human Rights and Humanitarian Action General objectives Over the past decades, human rights have known a singular development that upsets the traditional Westphalian order of the world. Human rights are often perceived as the panacea of the many ills that convulse today's global society: failing aid to development, impunity, corruption, social injustice, indignity, insecurity… Omnipresent, they are no longer the exclusive matter of international advocacy NGOs: governments, intergovernmental organizations, corporations, development agencies, local organizations working in the fields of health, education, environmental protection, labour… are and will be confronted with the exacting demands of human rights discourse. This cannot be truer than in the field of humanitarian action which has also known (unsurprisingly) a formidable expansion in parallel. This intertwining of human rights and humanitarian action would seem natural but is not in fact historically based, and is both intellectually and pragmatically challenging. Main orientations and specific feature The Master in Human Rights and Humanitarian Action programme provides students with a unique blend of core social science approaches (philosophy, history, sociology, anthropology) to humanitarianism and human rights intended to deconstruct the intuitive familiarity between the two fields and renew the debate concerning the universalism and political neutrality of human rights and humanitarian action through empirical study. It also offers indispensable courses in international law and global/regional institutional frameworks and advocacy skills. The teaching and learning objective is to give students the tools for strong analytical contextualisation that gives both depth and breadth to the issues and stakes in human rights and humanitarian action and that enable students to make the 'right decision at the right moment' when undertaking action on the ground. Going beyond the offerings of a typical LLM human rights programme or the more professionally oriented 'humanitarian' programmes. Another unique element of the programme is an emphasis on the "French" approach to humanitarian action and human rights while incorporating the pragmatic, judicial American approach to the field. Depending on their career goals, students will specialise during their second year in either the field of human rights or humanitarian action. Career opportunities Master of Human Rights and Humanitarian Action graduates may consider a variety of careers: NGOs, the diplomatic corps/national administrations, international organisations, journalism, and with a prior qualifying course of study, law (practising lawyer, international and regional courts of justice).

Programme description Child Studies is an interdisciplinary master’s programme that focusses on the critical study of questions related to children and childhood. The programme is mainly taught online, with some short campus periods. The programme can be taken as a one-year master’s degree (60 credits) or a two‑year master’s degree (120 credits). A core focus of the programme is how to apply the latest research findings in order to critically review, develop and improve policies and practices related to children and childhood. The programme further provides the theoretical and methodological tools that prepare students for designing, planning and conducting research in topics that concern children, childhood and families. The programme is hosted by the internationally renowned research department in Child Studies at Linköping University, which has conducted research in child and childhood studies since 1988. The teachers on the programme are active researchers, which guarantees that cutting-edge knowledge is presented in all courses. Broaden and deepen your knowledge The programme comprises one year of full-time studies (60 credits option) or two years (120 credits option). Both years include a research methods course and a master’s thesis course. This means that you can either finish your studies with a one-year master’s degree or continue to take the second year and obtain a two-year master’s degree. During the first term, you will be introduced to the interdisciplinary field of child studies with a special focus on historical, anthropological and sociological perspectives. Each of the three courses introduces you to a methodological approach to child studies. You will learn more about how to design and conduct a research study in child studies during the two courses on methodology (terms 2 and 4), which will prepare you for your master’s theses – one in year one and one in year two. For each thesis you will have an individually appointed thesis supervisor. The remaining courses of the programme are dedicated to various areas in child studies including: children’s rights, parents and the family, education and school, migration, culture, the media, and health. These courses will give you a broad knowledge about the various questions that concern the lives of children, and they will deepen your knowledge of methodological approaches and theoretical perspectives in child studies. Online and on-campus training Most of the courses are taught online with the aid of a digital learning platform. Most of the course literature is also accessible on-line through the electronic resources of the LiU library. This allows for some flexibility as to where and when you conduct your studies. The programme has high academic standards, however, and requires full-time study. In addition to online tuition, the programme comprises five campus periods of durations between 2 and 5 days, which are mandatory for all students. The campus periods comprise both academic seminars and social activities, during which students get to know each other and the teachers on the programme. This will facilitate online communication throughout the rest of the programme. Career opportunities Student of the master’s programme in Child Studies will be prepared for a career within governmental authorities and companies as well as local organisations, both governmental and non-governmental, whose activities affect children and their living conditions. The programme prepares professionals in the fields of, for example, education, politics, social work and care, who are equipped with cutting-edge knowledge in issues dealing with children and their living conditions. Graduates can also follow a career in research or continue their studies towards doctoral degree. [-]
