This is a two-year Master’s programme in the interdisciplinary field of human rights, with a profile within the humanities. The programme combines historical, philosophical, political, and legal perspectives on the complex phenomenon that human rights represent in our world. We are committed to the view that human rights need to be regarded and studied not only as ethical principles or ground for law and policy, but also as part of the infrastructure of a democratic society.

This is a research-oriented programme for students interested in gaining interdisciplinary skills relevant for political and cultural challenges of our time. We focus on an interactive teaching style with close connections to ongoing research. Students have the opportunity to complete an internship as part of their studies.
The programme is offered by the Human Rights Studies division at the Department of History, which is also home to the only PhD programme in interdisciplinary human rights studies in Sweden. We are located at the LUX Humanities Centre which offers a vibrant environment with library, café, and reading rooms.
