Human rights studies encompasses the eternal drive to improve the human condition, and attendant debates over the primacy of the individual within society and the universal versus relativist approach to rights, positive and negative freedoms. The Minor in Human Rights Studies draws its curriculum from a variety of disciplines.
The program of courses leading to a Minor in Human Rights Studies consists of 24 credits in the Department. The Minor is designed to provide an opportunity for students to make a combination with a Specialization, a Major, or Honours in another discipline.
For Undergraduate Students already at Concordia (concentration change), the requirements to add a minor in Human Rights Studies are:
at least 24 credits completed at Concordia
a GPA of at least 2.0
Please make an appointment to see one of the Department's Academic Advisors for further details.
