What is the degree program about?

This Master’s degree program for professional development is designed for professionals with an undergraduate degree and practical experience in relevant fields of employment. Due to its international focus, it is open to applicants from all over the world, in particular professionals working in international organisations and non-governmental organisations, public administrations (at the international, EU, federal, regional and municipal level), political consulting, in the press/media sector, in interest groups and associations, specialist legal firms, companies and research.

A special feature of this degree program is that it is also aimed at people who have been involved in human rights work on a voluntary or part-time basis and wish to gain professional qualifications in order to pursue these activities more extensively. Applicants will therefore be accepted who are employed in other fields but have practical experience in human rights work outside of their main profession.
