Overview

The master’s programme Human Rights Studies in Politics, Law and Society aims to prepare graduates with a strong interest in human rights and a first degree in social, cultural and/or political sciences as well as communication, law, philosophy and/or social work for a career as an expert for human rights issues.

In this interdisciplinary and social science based programme, students will critically study and analyse the historical and current institutionalisation and implementation of human rights in the fields of law, politics and civil society. Students will get to know approaches from the social and political sciences as well as from the laws, methods of the social sciences and also learn to consider aspects of interculturality and gender. In addition, students will analyse the national, regional and global development of human rights from a legal, political and sociological perspective. Furthermore, students will learn to identify and critically examine the developmental dynamics of society, politics and law which are influenced by the implementation and codifications of human rights. The political levels and social institutions are also relevant topics for the students. Additionally, students will learn to conduct human rights focused research independently using methods from the social sciences, to present developments in human rights with undergirding facts and figures and to negotiate in intercultural settings.
