3 Elective Cognate Courses from an approved list

The approved list of cognates comprises courses drawn from 16 academic departments and programs, giving students a wide range of traditional disciplinary perspectives to examine claims about 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. Students should work with the Human Rights Program adviser to put together an intellectually meaningful set of cognate courses.
