ISHR’s Human Rights Summer Program, developed in conjunction with the School of Professional Studies, emphasizes the interaction between human rights theory and practice and offers students the opportunity to explore human rights both inside and outside the classroom.
Throughout the summer, students are invited to attend discussions, trainings, performances, films, and other events that engage with the human rights community of New York City. Students also have the opportunity to learn from human rights practitioners through in-class guest lectures and optional site visits to human rights organizations.
Courses are offered at the graduate level and are open to non-degree, degree, and visiting students. Academic credit is awarded.
Previous coursework or knowledge of human rights is not required to enroll in the summer courses.
