The Master's Degree Programme in International Law and Human Rights provides specialised expertise in international and human rights law. Students have the possibility to build their individual, tailor-made profiles based on in-depth studies in different specialisation areas. Optional studies in subjects other than law are allowed. The programme offers the requisite background for advanced research while developing students’ practical application skills. Student learning is enhanced through an encouraging and supportive learning environment.
Career or after graduation opportunities
Graduates of the programme find employment in public institutions, international organisations, national or international non-governmental organisations, academia, legal practice and increasingly also in the private sector.
The degree awarded is Master of Social Sciences. However, the programme has a legal focus, corresponding to an LL.M. Degree. Please note that the widely known master's degree programme that has been ongoing since 2006 (the Master's Degree Programme in International Human Rights Law), will in autumn 2018 be broadened by adding a stronger element of studies in public international law alongside the human rights law focus.
