    This Master’s degree, organized by the “Bartolomé de las Casas” Human Rights Institute, offers specialized and advanced education in the field of human rights with an academic and research orientation and focus.

    This Master’s program provides an education on the basic aspects of human rights, in addition to specialization in different fields where human rights are studied.

    The student in this program will acquire knowledge of general theory about human rights and research methodology, international human rights law, constitutional law and jurisdictional protection of the rights, and contemporary challenges facing human rights. Accordingly, students are trained and prepared to carry out teaching and research in this field, which also enables them to participate in non-governmental organizations, national and international agencies that defend and promote human rights and human rights consultancies.

    The research involved will prepare students to access the Ph.D. program in Advanced Studies in Human Rights.

Graduates of educational systems outside the European Area of Higher Education may also access the course without any need to validate their qualifications, provided that the University is able to attest that their level of education is equivalent to the official Spanish university qualifications and that they are qualified to access postgraduate studies in their own country.

      Admission will depend on a selection process for all the candidates who comply with the legally established entry requirements. The selection process will take into account the fact that students are able to demonstrate sufficient guarantees of being able to successfully complete the course based on their curriculum, research interests and personal ability. For this purpose, in addition to evaluation of the documentation submitted, an essential prerequisite of the admissions procedure will be a personal interview either in person or through video conference.
