Human Rights Minor

The University of Washington is fortunate to house one of the strongest human rights programs in the country.  We offer a rich selection of courses taught by scholars from diverse schools, departments, and programs.

The curriculum reflects the rising interest in human rights throughout the world – even as human rights violations persist, and debate continues over the meaning and realization of human rights. Understanding this complex subject requires an interdisciplinary approach, one that combines in a new way the study of philosophy, politics, economics, culture, and law.

The Minor in Human Rights is a tri-campus initiative (UW Bothell, UW Seattle, and UW Tacoma). Students may, but are not required to, take courses from more than one campus in order to earn the minor.
