Course content

The Master of Human Rights offers candidates a firm foundation in human rights law and policy and, through a series of core units, provides a practical understanding of how human rights operate in different political, economic, social and environmental contexts. Students will build knowledge and skills in human rights across a wide range of disciplinary fields including Sociology and Social Policy, Political Science, Political Economy, Philosophy, History and Human Geography.

Emphasising the practice of human rights, the course equips you to skillfully and effectively use human rights tools and language, in order to achieve specific changes in the real world. You will gain knowledge on the mainstreaming of human rights norms within regional, national and state legislative and policy mechanisms and practices, and learn to engage with measurement, monitoring and evaluation. A practical dimension includes the opportunity to undertake an internship within an Australian or international human rights organisation.

The Master of Human Rights will also provide you with the opportunity to undertake independent scholarly research on current human rights issues, and the skills to put your academic understanding to use in real situations. While our degree has a global focus, it also capitalises on Australia’s geopolitical location, exploring domestic policy and legal issues in the context of the Asia-Pacific region.
