Content

With the increasing global demand for criminal justice to comply with human rights, now is the perfect time to study these two disciplines together. Within small teaching groups, you will have the opportunity to share knowledge and experiences of criminal justice with students from various countries. This programme explores human rights and criminal justice from an international viewpoint and will give you the opportunity to use your critical thinking to full effect. You will have the opportunity to study subjects such as Criminal Law, The Politics of Human Rights, Intellectual Property, Human Rights and Development.

This programme was designed with the assistance of human rights and criminal justice experts as well as our internal staff at the University. This collaborative approach will provide you with valuable insights into both subjects and will advance your understanding of factors that influence them. The programme has been carefully coordinated to align with the competencies of top employers in the legal profession.
