The OSUN Center for Human Rights & the Arts is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for our third cohort for the MA in Human Rights and the Arts program, with a starting term of Fall 2023.

The MA Program in Human Rights & the Arts offers a two-year graduate-level interdisciplinary curricular experience that takes stock of the growing encounter between human rights and the arts as fields of both academic knowledge and professional work. The program aims to stimulate new ways of thinking; develop new strategies for research, practice, and engagement; and incubate new relationships between activists, scholars, and artists. In addition to flexible and rigorous graduate-level coursework, students are expected to successfully present a research-based academic thesis or artistic performance/film/installation as their capstone project.

The MA program is housed in OSUN Center for Human Rights and the Arts (CHRA), at Bard College in the New York Hudson Valley, which offers a variety of co-curricular and professional development activities as well as research and travel grant opportunities. Need-based financial aid is available to all students (including those from outside the United States) in select amounts to help defray the cost of attendance (including tuition, fees, health insurance, and cost of living). When applying to the MA program, prospective students are not required to submit any standardized test scores (e.g., GRE), nor any application fee.

Students interested in the MA Program must apply online by the January 6, 2023 deadline. There is no application fee or any other costs associated with applying.
