MA in Human Rights and Genocide Studies - European Joint Master's ProgramIn recent years there has been a growing academic and practical interest in human rights and in a separate but related issue of genocide, with an increasing concern with how genocide might be prevented or halted. The European Master of Arts in Human Rights and Genocide Studies Program is concerned directly with these major themes of our time. This Program is a unique inter-disciplinary MA degree program, the first of its kind in Europe. It is taught in 4 universities:

Collegium Civitas, Warsaw (Poland)
European University-Viadrina, Frankfurt (Oder) (Germany)
Kingston University, London (UK)
Siena University, Siena (Italy)

Students will spend the first semester of their studies either at Kingston University in London or at the European University-Viadrina, Frankfurt (Oder). During the second semester they will study at any of the four universities, different from the one where they studied during the first semester. In the third semester, students will complete an internship and write their dissertation under the supervision of a professor from the chosen university.

This is to ensure that all students will receive the same quality education in Human Rights and Genocide Studies, while being able to deepen their interests and choose from a wide selection of modules provided by the participating institutions.
