Overview

The programme offers multidimensional and interdisciplinary training, in which basic knowledge of law, economics, sociology, history, philosophy and international relations focus on the theme of human rights. The aim of the course is to provide students with an adequate background of theoretical and applicative knowledge and transversal skills. They will be endowed with critical thinking as to approach international socio-political issues and to operate in an informed way in associations, corporate organisations and governmental agencies at local, national and international level.
Graduates are able to analyze the complex system of multi-level governance, from local to European and international, paying particular attention to the problems posed by groups in situations of vulnerability and with a gender-sensitive perspective. At the end of the Course, students have acquired analysis, negotiation, project development and management skills and can actively enter jobs sectors in Italy and abroad. They also gain the ability to address in a scientifically and ethically consistent way social, political and regulatory issues, to make choices and undertake actions, having as a term of reference the paradigm of internationally recognized human rights and the sustainable development goals and principles.
Graduates also acquire the basic skills to undertake further studies with a high degree of autonomy.
The course is supported by the Human Rights Centre “A. Papisca” of the University of Padova. It is also thanks to this cooperation that students can participate in international workshops, have conversations with European and international scholars, with experts and officers of international organisations, and with NGO staff. The course encourages study experiences abroad, within the framework of the European student mobility programmes and of bilateral agreements involving the University of Padua.
