Designed to be completed alongside your current role, we are committed to developing your skills and providing the rights-based tools to do so, for the practicable implementation of human rights law through the MSc Citizenship and Human Rights By Learning Contact from Glasgow Caledonian University.

By engaging with human rights law constructively and from a critical positioning, this programme serves your work in the formulation of policy regulations and practical solutions, as well as providing best practices to those of you on the ground. Recognising and supporting skills required for field-based human rights work, this masters degree in human rights provides you the knowledge for the preparation of policy briefs, legal documents and necessary steps for advocating for reform, whilst providing practicable and academic learning from the Judiciary, the medical fraternity, trade unions and independent journalists/correspondents.

 Accessible from anywhere in the world, the masters' MSc programme degree offers you, as a professional, a combination of cafe-style online forums and face-to-face curriculum. Bringing you together with a niche, yet diverse student community, interacting, sharing approaches and discussing theoretical application with tutors and sector leads, together we gain insight into comparative approaches, contexts and practices across sectors. We help build leadership, confidence and ability, so you can make human rights happen!

Graduate prospects

The masters blended learning model is designed to ensure you benefit from a meaningful sharing and learning environment with students from around the world - from large cosmopolitan cities, to fieldworkers based in and around refugee camps, to nurses undertaking shift work, and roaming journalists crossing borders. Suited to those working in the implementation of human rights principles, from those working in the health and medical sector, media and journalism, lawyers, trade unions, teachers, international and domestic civil servants and to people working in and across sectors, the programme provides you an integrated post-graduate work-based learning experience.
