Three students in class

Human Rights Education, MA

Learn about human rights education in the classroom and community. Prepare to tackle inequities of race, class, gender, sexual identity, religion, and nation.

Accepting for Fall 2024

I chose the Human Rights Education program because of its commitment to justice, education, and changing lives. The faculty are actively doing the work they teach in the classroom. The classroom settings are personal and filled with joy and hope. The support professors are great at making you aware of opportunities to help you as a learner, scholar, educator, and person."

— Brian Anthony Davis '21
