The Human Rights and International Relations programme at the University of Roehampton will provide you with a strong foundation of knowledge in human rights that draws upon a range of disciplines in law, politics, sociology, history and philosophy. This holistic approach to human rights will enable you to choose a specialisation and tailor your own research project according to your interests.
Gain international experience in the field by taking part in our annual research study trip to learn about the promotion and protection of human rights.
You will be taught by active researchers who are committed to social justice and have made groundbreaking impacts on society. The Crucible Centre for Human Rights Research is a multidisciplinary research centre conducting research on a range of contemporary human rights, migration and related issues. You will benefit regular workshops and seminars that the centre holds as well as being a part of major EU-funded projects and activities.
Graduates work for human rights campaigning, advocacy and defending within national and international government and non-governmental agencies, charities, think tanks, or in journalism and the media.
