Human Rights Studies
Human Rights Studies is a new collaborative degree program that integrates approaches from across the disciplines to provide students with critical understanding of, and experience in, the growing field of human rights.
Students will engage with expert faculty and practitioners on a wide range of topics related to the origins and development of human rights, and to their contemporary application in various fields of study and practice, including law, education, journalism, humanitarian relief and law enforcement.
Your experiences in studying Human Rights at King’s will prepare you to recognize and understand the variety of rights violations you will encounter throughout your lifetime. As an educator, as a law enforcement officer, as a politician, a policy-maker, a lawyer, an artist or a health care worker – the ability to fulfill your mandate in all areas of service to humanity will be enhanced by the knowledge, skills and experience you will acquire in this area of study. In acknowledging human rights, their power and their fragility, we become fully human.
