Thoughts on the programme: The interdisciplinary nature of the human rights master programme was the main reason why I chose this programme as my second master. I think having deep insight needs a multilateral understanding and human rights studying is the one in the deep need of the multidimensional perception. I confirm that the program of human rights master in FAU fulfils this need.
The methodological and scientific approach of this programme, including obligatory and elective aspects of human rights which is multidimensional, makes it highly worthwhile to spend two years studying. Additionally, and significantly, the eminent professors who have the crucial key role in the quality of the programme are accurately chosen and implement their jobs perfectly for the goals of this programme. Moreover, being with multinational colleagues is a unique opportunity for increasing experience and friendship.
Professional background: I am a PhD candidate at FAU, under the supervision of Professor Sören Torrau, from the Didactics Department. My research topic is: “ A Content Analysis on Iran’s Social Science Textbooks regarding the Human Rights Concepts”. My dual Bachelor is on Literature and Law, and my first Master is in International Law. My second Master is in Human Rights. I was a teacher in my country in the areas of English and Social Studies. I also taught in a university as a visiting lecturer in the different public international law subjects, including human rights. My first master’s thesis in public international law is about the right to education and the State’s obligation. I focused on the children who are deprived of education in my country. My second master’s thesis in the human rights program is about child marriage in Iran. I believe that Human Rights Education through school systems can change societies towards peace, tolerance, and justice from the grassroots. My goal is to broaden and strengthen my knowledge in finding the best way to engage children in their and others’ inherent rights and dignity through education.
