Individually Tailored, Interdisciplinary Major and Minor in Human Rights
The study of human rights draws on multiple disciplines and perspectives to address fundamental questions relating to the humane treatment of people—theoretically, historically, and globally. For example, what are internationally recognized human rights norms, and what are their origins and controversies? Why do human rights conditions vary so widely? How and why do human rights practices change, and how can more effective practices and policies be devised to protect human rights? Students who wish to pursue an in-depth examination of human rights may undertake an individually tailored, interdisciplinary major in Human Rights Studies. Student learning in the major is supplemented by numerous co-curricular opportunities offered through the Human Rights Program, including human rights lectures, films, performances, exhibits, and internships.
