Human Rights Courses

Human Rights Courses


Periodically, Human Rights Center staff and faculty teach classes on human rights issues. Graduate seminars are offered through the School of Law or the School of Public Health. An undergraduate course on international human rights taught by the Center’s directors is offered by the Legal Studies program. There are also several other courses involving human rights lead by other UC Berkeley faculty.

Human Rights Minor (Undergraduate)

This is a program under the newly developed Global Studies Program. Helping undergraduates explore issues via multiple forms of thought and media of expression—through literature as well as politics, journalism as well as law, film as well as anthropology—the HRI minor emphasizes the many different intellectual spaces in which human rights questions are currently being posed.
