The Master of Arts in Human Rights, International Program began in 1999 and is the longest running accredited graduate degree programme in human rights in Southeast Asia. Since its establishment, the programme has attracted a large number of international students from Asia as well as from North America and Europe. The Programme’s medium of teaching is English.
The programme aims at producing graduates who are capable of applying the knowledge of human rights they will gain to their respective fields of work, be they academics, policy makers, or activists. The curriculum is designed to reflect the interdisciplinary nature of human rights issues, combining philosophical, social scientific, and legal approaches to the discipline. Students will learn to acquire knowledge independently, a skill necessary for the advancement of academic studies and the promotion of human rights in society, as well as benefiting from the interactive style of teaching.

Many of our graduates also choose to stay in the region after finishing their degree to complete internships, taking advantage of the large number of international agencies and NGOs with offices in Bangkok.

The programme is designed for completion in one year of full time study and thesis research. Under mitigating circumstances, this deadline is extendable with the prior approval of both the Thesis Supervisor and Programme Director, up to a maximum of 3 years.
