How does history impact human rights today? How has war affected social justice?
This course has a specific focus on examining the historical roots of contemporary problems in human rights. The course is taught in collaboration with the Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice Practice and the Centre for the Historical Record at Kingston University. You will engage with current issues as a researcher, activist, campaigner and blogger, under the supervision of specialists at the centres.
The focus on practical projects will develop your skills in research, analysis, critical reflection and political communication. The course has flexible modules so you can study a combination of politics, history, criminology and sociology to suit your own areas of interests.
Kingston is a great location for history students. You'll have easy access to the UK's major historical research centre, the National Archives. Kingston is also home to historical landmarks such as Hampton Court Palace, Marble Hill House and the medieval Clattern Bridge. In addition, our close proximity to central London gives you access to more historically fascinating destinations.
