Thoughts on the programme: Having a background in law and humanitarian studies, I have always been passionate about studying a programme on human rights, one that is strictly not legal. The M.A in Human Rights at the FAU fits this description well because it not only consists of the legal aspects but also philosophical studies on human rights. The courses allow students to have an open discussion by creating a platform for the exchange of ideas.
Additionally, the programme has brilliant professors who are experts in the field and programme staff who are always supportive and in close contact with students.
Professional background: Before commencing my studies in FAU, I was working in the humanitarian sector on child protection. Humanitarian work has been my passion, and I believe it encompasses a broad range of human rights which are mostly neglected in times of crises. With the added knowledge and experience from this program, I wish to pursue this career again.
