Developed in cooperation with the Center for Human Rights Leadership, the Human Rights, Genocide and Holocaust Studies sequence will help students to obtain the knowledge, skills, and moral insight needed to intervene constructively in a world rife with human rights abuses, terrorism, and genocidal conflict. The sequence emphasizes historical and political-economic analysis, moral reflection, and practical experience that explore not only the causes of human rights violations and genocide, but also the ethical commitments, economic policies, political processes, and leadership qualities that are necessary to oppose and correct those destructive conditions. Completion of the sequence will be noted on students’ transcripts.
