Study a Human Rights Masters in Italy in 2024

As a human we are automatically entitled to a certain amount of rights simply because we are a human. These rights are applicable wherever in the world we live or travel to, and are applied regardless of our age, gender, race, sexuality, religion or any other status. As society becomes more globalised, it is becoming clear that these rights are not being adhered to across the world, and this is something that human rights lawyers, activists and researchers are looking to change and develop.

During a masters in human rights, you will build on the knowledge you gained at undergraduate level. Modules you study could include:

  • Refugees, Displacement and Humanitarian Responses
  • Women and Human Rights
  • The International Politics of Health
  • Civil and Political Rights
  • Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery

Study in Italy

Home to some of the world's oldest universities, Italy has a long history of providing high quality higher education to both domestic and international students. The country has not only played an integral part of the Bologna Process education reform, it was also one of the four countries that created the European Area of Higher Education. Both of these play an important role in widening the access to higher education across Europe, with international students from all over the world now able to experience an Italian university education, thanks to the country's contributions.
