Now Accepting Applications for New Masters of Science Degree in Human Rights, Fall 2019!

The State University of New York (SUNY) System has approved its first ever Masters of Science Degree in Human Rights, at the College of Community and Public Affairs, Binghamton University.

The M.S. in Human Rights will offer professional training for interdisciplinary applied research and practice in human rights, with a focus on community-level engagement. Students will also develop competencies in community organizing, social innovation, and program evaluation. The M.S. offers human rights approaches to a variety of issues, including education, health, violence, children, family, poverty, incarceration, immigration, and the political economy. Students develop professional skills for working in human rights organizations at the local, regional, national, and international levels. Students with a passion for these fields are encouraged to apply.
