New Human Rights Major @ UConn

The University of Connecticut and its Human Rights Institute & College of Liberal Arts & Sciences have announced that a new undergraduate major in human rights will begin in May 2012. CIRI is very proud to be affiliated with these institutions and with this new interdisciplinary major, and encourages anyone thinking about an education in human rights to check it out.

For those interested in graduate studies in human rights, the Human Rights Institute at UConn already offers a graduate certificate in human rights, and  many PhD-granting departments such as political science, history, English, anthropology, and economics have many top scholars in the field of human rights who participate in this program (as well as will be participating in the new undergraduate major).
