This programme provides you with an understanding and knowledge of what constitutes human rights, how human rights are utilised and how the development of human rights is a result of transformation in the world.
Human rights imply that all people are born free, are of equal value and have equal rights. But what rights prevail, how are they monitored and what happens when they are violated?
After graduation, students will be able to work with legal, political or ethical issues within the sphere of human rights. Students can also continue on to master's studies.
The issue of human rights is constantly relevant. By studying them, their importance, history and implementation, we are provided with the opportunity to fully understand current events in public debates, ranging from migration and children's rights to global crime and criminal law.
In this programme, we take a look at the local and international role of human rights, and their role in public authorities, organisations and businesses. The role of human rights in democracies and oppressive regimes will also be studied.
This three-year bachelor's programme provides you with in-depth knowledge of human rights and how they are applied and affected by the world we live in. This is a multi-disciplinary programme, which focuses on viewing human rights through three perspectives:
What role do human rights play in international law? How have these rights changed from commonly held moral norms to law, and what has happened as a result of this?
How are international communities and governments addressing human rights? We will look at this from a sociological and political perspective.
What questions are raised by these rights? Who decides which rights predominate, and what is the significance of having human rights?
During the programme, you can choose to do an internship, study abroad or take elective courses. This provides you with the opportunity to deepen your knowledge and get practical experience in human rights work, as well as the chance to develop relationships and network with people and organisations in the industry.
The diversity of the programme combined with its multidisciplinary focus provides you with competencies attractive in numerous sectors and in a constantly growing labour market. You will be able to work with legal, political and ethical issues, as well as to continue studies at a master’s level.
Future employers may include private sector businesses, local and international organisations and agencies, as well as national authorities and government organisations.
Studying human rights gives you a platform for a career in organisations such as the UN, Amnesty International and the European Union.
