The Gladstein Family Human Rights Institute at the University of Connecticut offers a two-year Master of Arts in Human Rights to advance students’ knowledge of human rights from both academic and professional perspectives; training them to become competitive candidates for positions in a variety of sectors, including industry, government, education, and advocacy.

Our human rights faculty are internationally recognized experts drawn from disciplines across the University of Connecticut and here to share their skills in human rights practice, research, and education. This diversity facilitates students’ study of their particular human rights interest while at the same time broadening their topical and methodological human rights knowledge.

Our two-year 30-credit master’s program consists of 15 core credits and 15 credits of electives, including a 200-hour practicum. This project-based fieldwork is done with an approved partner organization related to the field of human rights and provides students real problem-solving experience related to their career goals.
