Bachelor’s Program in Human Rights

This is an interdisciplinary program that introduces students to human rights as a philosophical, legal, social and political concept. The program is thematically structured and includes specific courses on, for instance, the rights of persons with disabilities, women’s rights, children’s rights, discrimination, migration and asylum, surveillance, religious freedom, as well as human rights and democracy. The program includes possibilities for international exchange and concludes with a full semester in which students pursue an internship in a field relevant to human rights. At the moment, the program is only available in Swedish.
