What is the degree program about?

The degree program for professional development in Human Rights is aimed at working professionals with a Bachelor’s degree and practical experience in relevant areas of work. Due to its international approach, it is open to applicants from across the globe, in particular for people working in international organizations and NGOs, in public administration (at the international, EU, Federal, state and municipal level), in political consulting, in press or media, in lobby groups and associations, in specialist law firms, companies and in research.

One special feature of this degree program is that it also addresses people who volunteer or work part time in the area of human rights and now want to obtain a qualification to be able to branch out more into this field of work. Applicants who are working in other areas but who have practical experience in human rights outside the scope of their main occupation are therefore also admitted to the degree program.
