Birkbeck, University of London has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Political, social and economic challenges are frequently articulated through the language of human rights. Is the rise of human rights discourse an emblem of hope and a political horizon, mobilising resistance to human need and suffering? Or do human rights claims deflect more radical political demands and block real transformation? Can the manifold crises of contemporary life be made more intelligible through the frame of human rights?These are just some of the questions taken up in this degree. We are proud to offer this exciting and innovative Master's degree, leading to the award of an LLM or MA Human Rights. Students who complete the programme can choose which award they receive (the content is the same for each). The distinctive focus of the programme is on theoretically informed and multidisciplinary approaches to human rights. It aims to expose you to a critical and contextual engagement with the subject. You will study human rights in their legal, political, sociological, anthropological and philosophical contexts.You will be introduced to a wide variety of approaches to research across a range of disciplines, and to the theoretical frameworks for advanced legal scholarship. You will also take option modules, choosing from a wide range of subjects in the area of human rights.This programme is particularly attractive to legal professionals, and to non-lawyers who work, or would like to work, in the field of human rights, allowing them to reflect critically on their role as human rights activists and practitioners.HIGHLIGHTS
