The successful development of Human Rights Program for undergraduate students has encouraged the faculty members to propose a graduate program leading to a degree of Master of Social Sciences in Human Rights. In the July of 2008, ten graduate students from different fields passed the entrance exam and were admitted to the program. It is an interdisciplinary degree program in the social sciences. The program provides students with the flexibility to pursue coursework that spans several disciplines. It is designed to meet the needs of graduate students who are interested in advanced study of human rights within the social sciences. Students typically enter the program from very diverse backgrounds. All students have in common a high level of motivation and a desire to learn more about the idea of human rights in the area of the social sciences. A student is required to complete 24 credit hours to earn the degree.
