Human Rights and Cultural Diversity

Our course is suitable for students who have a particular interest in this specialised area of study; students acquire a deeper knowledge and understanding of the central issues and debates surrounding the application and justification of human rights within a culturally complex and diverse world; these problems are legal, social, political and philosophical, and the course reflects this in its multidisciplinary approach. In contrast to the University's other human rights courses, this programme examines human rights specifically in relation to cultural diversity; graduates are well placed for careers as a journalist, a policy analyst or researcher, as an official in the United Nations system or as an activist in humanitarian and policy-making non-governmental bodies in the UK and abroad.
