What will I learn?
Human rights are a multidisciplinary area that incorporates political theories, anthropology, philosophy, education, social work, development studies and legal frameworks to build a broad and critical understanding of human rights.
This course is suited to human rights workers, those who want to work in the human rights field, professionals who wish to apply human rights principles to their practice, development workers, non-government organisation workers, activists, teachers, mediation and conflict workers, and community workers.
You will study the theory and philosophy of human rights across different cultural, religious, philosophical and political traditions, and how these ideas are translated into practice in the contemporary world. This course is suitable for those working both in Australia and internationally. It provides an opportunity to discuss human rights and develop your ideas and skills in human rights practice with people from different cultural backgrounds, professions and disciplines.
Graduates will have an internationally recognised qualification which will assist with entry to exciting career prospects in a wide range of government and non-government settings.
Previous graduates have gone on to work in European Union (EU) anti-racism programs, human rights non-government organisations (NGOs) in Indonesia, policy development roles in Western Australia, direct service provision both locally and overseas in a range of human services, and advocacy and lobbying positions.
