Recognise and protect the inherent value of every person.

Studying a human rights course is a brave step towards making positive change in your life and the lives of others. Learning about human rights takes courage, compassion, and dedication.

Explore global and local human rights challenges, including climate change, refugees, reconciliation, and modern slavery. Complex international systems are in place providing opportunities to work in NGOs, public think tanks, and state or federal government.
