Human Rights & Humanitarian Affairs (Minor Only)

The minor in human rights introduces students to basic concepts in human rights and encourages them to think about human rights issues beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries. This curriculum not only addresses foundational human rights norms and institutions, but also allows students to consider how those norms are implemented, rejected, transformed, and revolutionized. The minor affords students the opportunity to consider human rights in both theory and in practice, as they will enroll in both a human rights-related service learning course and the human rights capstone (POLS 470), which requires that students conduct original research on a human rights topic.
