The University of Pennsylvania Graduate Certificate in Interdisciplinary Studies in Global Human Rights is designed to provide enriched perspectives on human rights.
Through this Certificate, students will gain a working knowledge of the core international human rights documents, treaties, and mechanisms.
By taking a cross-disciplinary approach, students are challenged to look at similar topics or questions from different approaches. Access to diverse coursework gives students the opportunity to shape this certificate around their own specific interests within human rights.
This Certificate accords with the United Nations Second Phase of the World Program for Human Rights Education (WPHRE) that began in 2010 and focuses on institutions of higher education.
