The MA in Understanding and Securing Human Rights is the longest-running interdisciplinary, practice-orientated human rights master’s degree programme in the UK. It was established in collaboration with Amnesty International to provide scholarly and practical training for future human rights defenders.
Located in Bloomsbury, the intellectual heart of London, it offers students easy access to world-class libraries and facilities, including Senate House Library, the British Library and the British Museum.
The degree aims to develop students as human rights practitioners and to enable them to engage with the intellectual and philosophical foundations of human rights.
All of our graduates are awarded a University of London degree. The course can be studied full time or part time.
