Old Aberdeen Campus
With a strong focus on law and politics, Human Rights at Aberdeen explores social and economic rights such as education, health, housing and family rights. It looks at the international law of conflicts, how human rights impacts on criminal law and how the rules of law develop over time as social and political change occurs. The programme will help you develop a clearer understanding of human rights in today's society around the world. You will have the opportunity to study subjects such as International Human Rights Law, The Politics of Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law.
This programme was designed with the assistance of human rights experts as well as our internal staff at the University. With this combined input, you will gain unique insights into human rights around the world and will advance your understanding of factors that influence them. The programme has been carefully coordinated to align with the competencies required for today’s international job market.
Normally, a 2.1 honours degree (or equivalent) in Law will be required to be accepted onto this programme. Relevant practical experience in a related field will also be beneficial.
