Course Overview

Human Rights encompass a theoretical, philosophical, practical and legal system which advocates the position that individuals are the bearers of basic rights fundamental to human dignity. The BA with Human Rights examines the philosophical basis, history and origin of human rights. The concept of human rights is closely allied with ethics and morality. However, while there is widespread acceptance of the importance of human rights, there is confusion as to their precise nature and role.

The BA with Human Rights is an innovative four-year degree programme that introduces students to this increasingly important specialism, emphasising its historical evolution from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948 to its contemporary relevance as a subject and a body of law. The human rights system in international law seeks to regulate the relationship between states and individuals and defines a series of rights which states are obliged to uphold.

Course Outline

The Bachelor of Arts with Human Rights is an exciting, four year degree programme offered by the College of Arts, Social Sciences, and Celtic Studies in conjunction with the Irish Centre for Human Rights. The programme is unique in several respects, chiefly because it is the first and only undergraduate
programme of its kind in the Republic of Ireland, thus allowing undergraduates to specialise in a field that was previously reserved to postgraduate study. The programme examines the philosophical basis, history and origin of human rights while remaining grounded in the reality of events that have shaped the world. During the first two years of the programme, students are based on campus in NUI Galway and engage with human rights discourse through class-based teaching at the Irish Centre for Human Rights, supported by field trips and lectures by visiting experts.

Year One

In their first year, students will be introduced to the basic principles of human rights through an in-depth exploration of the foundations of this field as contained in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The programme will also offer an introduction to the United Nations system for the promotion and protection of human rights while also examining regional and national systems, and the role of non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Students will further participate in weekly class discussions on current human rights developments.

Year Two

A more thematic approach to human rights analysis is adopted in the second year of the programme, during which historical themes and contemporary issues are raised and examined so that students develop an understanding of how human rights interact and potentially conflict with each other in specific situations. The second year of the programme will, therefore, enable students to analyse the difficulties of realising human rights on the ground and will teach them to think practically when approaching human rights problems in reality.

Topics are subject to the availability of lecturers in any one year, but subjects which may be covered include liberty and detention, human rights and armed conflict, minority rights, universality and cultural relativism, as well as economic, social and cultural rights. Students are also given human rights advocacy training to equip them with the skills to analyse human rights movements and campaigns and familiarise them with the practicalities of engaging in such efforts.

Year Three

During the third year of the programme, students are required to undertake a work placement outside of the university setting to develop practical skills and experience the reality of a career in the field of human rights. This placement is similar in style to a traditional internship. However, it departs slightly from that format as it is an integrated requirement of an academic course. Although they may change from year to year, placements to date have been secured around the world – from Dublin to London, Paris, Los Angeles, Montreal, San Ramon in Nicaragua and Durban. It is planned that placements will take place in semester two after a series of lectures and research during semester one.

Year Four

You will complete your studies in your two core degree subjects and may incorporate in your final year projects the specialist skills and knowledge you have gained in human rights over your previous three years.

Module
An examinable portion of a subject or course, for which you attend lectures and/or tutorials and carry out assignments. E.g. Algebra and Calculus could be modules within the subject Mathematics. Each module has a unique module code eg. MA140.
Subject
Some courses allow you to choose subjects, where related modules are grouped together. Subjects have their own required number of credits, so you must take all that subject's required modules and may also need to obtain the remainder of the subject's total credits by choosing from its available optional modules.
Optional
A module you may choose to study.
Required
A module that you must study if you choose this course (or subject).
Required Core Subject
A subject you must study because it's integral to that course.
Semester
Most courses have 2 semesters (aka terms) per year, so a three-year course will have six semesters in total. For clarity, this page will refer to the first semester of year 2 as 'Semester 3'.
