About us

Welcome to Human Rights Studies

Human Rights Studies is an interdisciplinary subject under the Department of History, Faculty of Humanities and Theology. Human Rights Studies was formed in 2003 by a handful of lecturers from different disciplines, all of which had one thing in common, human rights. It all started on a small scale with a few independent courses and now grown larger. Today we offer education at all levels; Bachelor program, Master's program and Sweden's only Doctoral education in human rights.
