LLM in Human Rights
As a field of academic study, human rights cuts across a wide variety of disciplines. It sits at the heart of law, political science, theology and history. This programme is designed to provide you with a theoretical and practical understanding of international human rights law in its broader political context, with a particular emphasis on the relationship between human rights and conflict resolution.
You will be able to explore the role of human rights globally and the international and domestic machinery that promotes and enforces rights, while focusing on how academic debates connect to the practice of human rights.
The University is home to five closely cooperating Global Academies in the areas of justice, health, development, environment and society, and agriculture and food security, which together address crucial global challenges that span the ambit of civil, political, social, economic and cultural rights.
As a student on this programme, you will have the unique opportunity to draw on the academic space for learning human rights created by the activities and research of these Academies.
The programme can be taken full-time over 12 months.
