Bachelor of Arts in Human Rights

BA in Human Rights


The Human Rights program examines human rights in global contexts, as mechanisms to address issues of human dignity, social justice, and global citizenship.  The program explores the origins and rise of human rights concepts, and the continuing evolution of human rights definitions and debates. The program aims to equip students for education and advocacy in human rights, and to understand ways to respond to human rights abuses. A guiding premise of the program is that “human rights” are understood in multiple ways and contexts; the program includes courses from diverse fields such as anthropology, business, conflict resolution, criminal justice, international development, history, philosophy, religious and cultural studies, and women’s and gender studies.
