Minor in Human Rights

15-credit minor in Human Rights:

Students in majors such as Anthropology, History, Political Science, Sociology, Urban Affairs and Planning, etc. could select Human Rights as a minor. The minor consists of the following courses:

  • Introduction to Human Rights (HR 20000 )

  • 3 Cognate courses
    • Cognate courses draw on traditional disciplinary perspectives to examine claims about, e.g., the universal nature of human rights, their historical origins, social and cultural contexts that affect the understanding and status of human rights, and the relation of human rights to political conflicts and the presence or absence of economic well-being.
