Human Rights Program students in class

Graduate students at the University of Minnesota have a number of opportunities to get involved in human rights.

  • Master of Human Rights

    The College of Liberal Arts and the Humphrey School of Public Affairs jointly offer an interdisciplinary, two-year Master of Human Rights degree. This newly created program seeks to provide students with conceptual and professional knowledge suited to a career in human rights.
  • Human Rights Graduate Minor

    Graduate students pursuing other degrees can add a focus on human rights through the graduate minor in human rights. The minor is available for master's, doctoral, and law students.
  • Internships & Capstones

    The Human Rights Program also coordinates a number of human rights internships and capstones for graduate students.
