All university students admitted to post-baccalaureate programs at the University are eligible to take courses leading to the Global Human Rights Certificate.

Juniors and seniors may apply to the advisors of their schools for eligibility status to pursue the requirements.

Students are encouraged to maintain contact with their department/school to ensure that they remain on-track for their certificate.

Certificate Administration

The Certificate is awarded by SAS. Each participating school appoints an advisor(s) for the Human Rights Certificate to advise and supervise students seeking to satisfy the requirements of the Certificate. These advisors constitute the executive committee.  Advisors determine whether to approve the completion of the five courses for students in their School, and recommend the awarding of the Certificate.  An advisor may allow a student in his/her School to count two courses outside the preapproved list toward the five course requirement.  This decision requires the submission of a petition form, and the executive committee’s approval of the merit of the petition.

Notation of Certificate

Once students have completed their course requirements, a Completion Form should be forwarded to their Certificate Advisor:
