Program description

Human Rights Studies

Human Rights are predicated upon the belief that every human being deserves to be treated with equal dignity, and that every person has inherent value. But how do we move towards these goals? Human Rights Studies interrogate how we fulfill these ideals, but also how we fail to do so in different times and places. It equips students with the intellectual and practical skills they need to explore, understand, and act-to become protagonists in the equal granting of all human beings the status and the rights associated with their being.
