The first work-based Masters in Citizenship and Human Rights.
Created in partnership with the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO), part funded by the Highlands and Islands European Social Fund, and welcomed by the Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), our course is designed for professionals and volunteers in the Third Sector and Public Sector interested in, or working to promote the principles of human rights - including anti-discrimination, participative democracy, accountability and social responsibility.
As well as exploring human rights issues you will gain an understanding of how globalisation has altered the labour market and understand valuable leadership and social responsibility practice.
This Masters Programme is designed for the professionals and volunteers who work between state and market and who are interested in promoting the principles of human rights including anti-discrimination, participative democracy, accountability and social responsibility.
The home for the protection and development of human rights and citizenship today, is widely recognised as being the space between the state and the market, in, what we might loosely call, community or – to be more precise - civil society. This is also the prominent space of operations for third sector organisations. The protection and enhancement of human rights and equality and the celebration of diversity and difference are fundamentally important to organisations working in civil society with marginalised people.
Welcomed by the Equalities and Human Rights Commission (EHRC), the course is designed for professionals and volunteers in the Third Sector and Public Sector who are interested in, or working to promote, the principles of human rights - including anti-discrimination, participative democracy, accountability and social responsibility.
