University of Nottingham
Masters (MA)/PGDip

1 year/9 months
Full time  (with part time option)

Course description:

Demand for various forms of expertise on human rights, citizenship and identities is rapidly expanding as governments, international agencies, non-governmental and private sector organisations become increasingly sensitive to, and interested in questions about rights and identities.

In the current global context, national versions of citizenship have reached crisis point. Yet what does it mean to think of yourself as a global citizen? The Global Citizenship, Identities and Human Rights course investigates critical global issues such as war, migration, climate change, credit crunch, nationalism, global media, sex tourism, modern slavery, gender and sexuality and contemporary racism.

It is particularly suited to social science and arts graduates who wish to pursue careers in non-governmental organisations, academia, civil service or journalism. It provides advanced sociological knowledge of debates on human rights, citizenship, globalisation and identities, and offers opportunities to develop specialist understanding of post-conflict cultures, human rights law and/or of media and globalisation, rights and identities.
