BA 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 University's Bachelor of Arts (BA) in International Human Rights.

As a Webster student in the International Human Rights program, you'll develop a greater understanding of human rights standards, problems and solutions. Also, 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.

Webster University is a leader in human rights education. 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. 

Offered through the University's Center for Interdisciplinary Studies, the program draws from courses in history, politics, international relations, philosophy, English, behavioral and social sciences, religious studies, and communications.

In addition to human rights curriculum, students must acquire intermediate competence in a foreign language.
