Certificate in International Human Rights

Are you passionate about being involved in a world where all persons are valued and respected? You can become a influencer and contributor with Webster's Certificate in International Human Rights.

Webster University is a leader in human rights education, offering one of the only undergraduate human rights degrees in the United States. Interdisciplinary courses are taught by faculty from across the Webster community, and co-curricular events sponsored by the Institute for Human Rights and Humanitarian Studies often bring leading scholars and activists to Webster campuses.

Our students learn more about human rights with opportunities for studying abroad, editing an international journal of human rights called Righting Wrongs, and helping to organize the Annual Human Rights Conference in Saint Louis, Missouri.

More demanding than the International Human Rights minor but less demanding than the International Human Rights major, this option is well suited to students with a strong interest in human rights but who are majoring in another subject. As a "stand-alone" certificate, it is also appropriate for those students with a strong interest in human rights and who have completed a BA or BS at another institution but who are not currently considering graduate or professional school.
