The University of Minnesota offers a diverse selection of undergraduate courses focused on human rights, including courses delivered through the Departments of Anthropology, Chicano & Latino Studies, Philosophy, Political Science, Spanish & Portuguese Studies, and Sociology, as well as the Institute for Global Studies. Many of these courses are taught by faculty members affiliated with the Human Rights Program.

These courses include GLOS 3401W: International Human Rights Law, a foundational human rights course offered every fall, and GLOS 3896: Global Studies Internship, offered every spring, which pairs students with a local human rights organization to complete a 100-hour internship for credit. Successful completion of GLOS 3896 also fulfills the experiential learning requirement for the B.A. program in Global Studies.
