The Center for Human Rights currently runs a multidisciplinary human rights training in MA and Ph.D. programs.
The M.A program was launched in October 2009 to provide quality and rigorous training in human rights as a subject of multidisciplinary inquiry at the graduate level. Courses offered in the M.A in human rights program include the philosophical and ethical foundations of human rights, the politics of human rights and democratization, federalism, diversity and human rights, human rights and development, culture, social change, and human rights and transitional justice.
The program engages academics and researchers from various disciplines including law, political science, philosophy, sociology, and development studies. It is offered on a regular full-time basis and it takes 18 months to complete and has thesis and non-thesis options.
The Ph.D. program was initially designed as a joint program in peace, federalism, and human rights together with the Center for Federalism and Governance Studies and Institute of Peace and Security Studies. The Center currently runs a Ph.D. program in Human Rights, having admitted its third batch. With the program’s revised curriculum since 2017, the Center strives to enhance the capacity of higher education and research institutions through doctoral and independent researchers of international standards perused in line with scientific and ethical principles in the field of human rights.
