Minor in Human Rights


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Roosevelt House

The 15 credit minor in Human Rights consists of five 3 credit courses:

  1. 2 Core Required Courses
    • Introduction to Human Rights (HR 20000)
    • Internship in Human Rights (HR 25000)
  2. 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. Complementing these elective courses offered by regular Hunter departments, the Human Rights Program itself offers special elective courses taught at Roosevelt House each semester by distinguished human rights practitioners. To be accepted into the Minor program, a student must have completed HR 20000 with a B and have a cumulative GPA of 3.0.
