About

The Social Justice and Human Rights MA program from Arizona State University addresses urgent social issues related to human security, labor, migration, children, family, education and the environment.

Overview

The Social Justice and Human Rights MA program from Arizona State University requires an internship to be completed domestically or internationally, in which students typically work alongside other advocates for social justice to help refugees, migrants, workers and survivors of violence or human trafficking.

Students may select from three degree tracks: research, advocacy, or critical trauma studies and social work. The research track prepares students for positions as researchers, analysts and advocates in governmental, intergovernmental and nongovernmental agencies.
