Graduates will learn to utilise the human rights framework in the development and evaluation of policy. They will have skills that will equip them for academic work, policy analysis, advocacy and communication roles in a range of contexts and organisations. Graduates will have the knowledge, understanding and skills equipping them for employment in human rights advocacy and research, policy analysis, legal services, human rights education, non-governmental organisations, community development, conflict resolution, civil society organizations and international development organisations.
