Starting in October 2014, the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg will offer a new, interdisciplinary and international master program on human rights (Master of Arts). The program encompasses courses on the philosophical, political and legal foundations of human rights as well as special areas of human rights.
The Master of Human Rights in Erlangen is directed by Professor Heiner Bielefeldt, Chair in Human Rights and Human Rights Policy and UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief; Professor Markus Krajewski, Chair in Public International Law; and Assoc. Professor Michael Krennerich.
Admission to the Master in Human Rights program requires a university degree based on a course of study consisting of 210 ECTS and at least one year of professional experience, either in the area of human rights or in combination with practical experience in human rights work on a volunteer basis. If your university degree is based on 180 ECTS you may be accepted on the basis of a special procedure determining additional qualifications.
The application for fall 2014/15 is now open! Applications are due August 15. For more information, visit http://humanrights-master.fau.de.
