The Master of Arts program in Justice and Human Rights offers an in-depth examination of contemporary issues related to justice. The program goes beyond legal formulations to explore the conditions under which human rights claims are made. The program focuses on the construction of human rights, exploring how human rights are framed through case studies, and the methods and methodologies used by NGOs and grassroots activist networks.

The program also examines the cultural context in which human rights are constructed, and how they relate to global structures and processes of governance. The program emphasizes the study of social justice beyond narrow, legalistic definitions of human rights, exploring the ways in which human rights can challenge established social structures and protect against capitalism, state repression, the discrimination of women, and violence against minorities. The program draws on a wide range of disciplines, including sociology, politics, anthropology, law, geography, English, literature, cultural studies, and criminology.
