New Global Human Rights Certificate

Global Human Rights CertificateThe Law School, in collaboration with the University's School of Arts & Sciences, Wharton Business School, Education and others, has created a Graduate Certificate in Interdisciplinary Studies in Global Human Rights. The new certificate will add another element to the cross-disciplinary curriculum, which includes more than 30 joint degree and certificate programs across schools such as Wharton and Penn Medicine.

Students will be required to complete a five-course program combining courses on international or comparative human rights law with courses that examine international human rights issues through the lenses of history, philosophy, political science and business.

The classes will integrate a cross-section of students studying to become lawyers, doctors, engineers, teachers, researchers, law enforcement officers, military and government personnel.
