Course content

Are you interested in human rights? And how human rights relate to problems of cultural inequalities around the world?

Our MA Human Rights and Cultural Diversity is suited to you if you have a particular interest in this specialised area of study. You 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 our course reflects this in our multidisciplinary approach. In contrast to our other human rights courses, this MA examines human rights specifically in relation to cultural diversity. You explore topics including:

- Theoretical foundations of human rights
- The practice of human rights in the context of cultural diversity
- Notions of human rights in Africa
- Contemporary issues of cultural diversity

Our interdisciplinary Human Rights Centre is the UK’s leading centre for the study of the theory and practice of international human rights, and has a worldwide reputation for research, teaching and practice. In February 2010, we were awarded the Queen’s Anniversary Prize in recognition of our work in advancing human rights across the globe.

At Essex we specialise in commercial law, public law, and human rights law. We are top 20 in the UK for research excellence (REF 2014), and we are ranked among the top 200 departments on the planet according to the QS World [University] Rankings [2017] for law.
