About the Programme
The Erasmus Mundus Joint Master’s Degree in Human Rights Policy and Practice (EMHRPP) is an innovative, integrated and interdisciplinary MA programme. It provides excellent educational training and professional competences to those intending to work and those already working in the field of human rights. The programme actively responds to the changing needs of students and the job market through a more cohesive curriculum structure guided by four central strands, which are highly pertinent to study and work in the field of human rights. These strands: human rights theory; research; practice and professionalisation, offer a uniquely joint approach to teaching and learning human rights, contributing to the development of the field of study and attractiveness of European education.
Students will earn 120 credits during the 24-month programme leading to a Joint Master’s Degree administered by the University of Gothenburg. The main academic subjects are human rights theory, human rights in the context of politics and the market economy, research methods and methodologies, human rights defenders, and social movements and NGOs.
Starting at the University of Gothenburg, all students will complete the same compulsory mobility path across the three Consortium Partner universities for the first three semesters (second semester at the university of Deusto, Bilbao, Spain and third semester at the University of Roehampton, London, UK). Teaching modules will be complemented with a Professional Seminar Series, field visits and a placement (internship) during the third semester with an organisation working in human rights in London. During the fourth semester, students are required to write a dissertation, supervised by academic staff from the three Partner universities. The programme is delivered by the University of Gothenburg (Lead Partner), Sweden, the University of Roehampton, London, UK, and University of Deusto, Bilbao, Spain.
