Advanced Human Rights Degree Offered By European University

Advanced Human Rights Degree Offered By European University

If you are working or teaching in the field of human rights, you may wish to apply for the one-year European Master's Degree in Human Rights and Democratisation (E.MA.) program offered by the European Inter-University Centre for Human Rights and Democratisation (EIUC).

What is the focus of the E.MA. program? According to EIUC representative Nicola Tonon, "[t]he programme offers an action- and policy-oriented approach to learning which combines interdisciplinary perspectives with skills building activities. While studying in a multicultural environment, students have the opportunity to share knowledge and skills with leading academics, representing the 41 European universities participating in the programme, as well as officials of international organisations (including the European Union, the United Nations and the Council of Europe), NGO experts and human rights activists."

If you matriculate, be prepared for some travel. Your first semester will take place in Venice, Italy. During your second semester, you will relocate to one of the 41 participating European universities. You will also experience a one-week field trip to a post-conflict country.

The deadline to apply is March 31, 2012.
