A Flexible Program with Solid Results
The EPHR MA is structured around a set of core courses in ethics, peace and conflict studies, and human rights. You will build on this foundation with courses in your chosen research methodologies and develop expertise by specializing in one of six concentration areas: Human Rights and Social Justice, Peace and Conflict Resolution, Global Environmental Justice, Ethics of Development, International Economic Justice, and Global Governance and International Organizations.
For the capstone experience, you can follow the traditional academic route by writing a master’s thesis or take a more applied approach by completing a substantial research paper, engaging in a practicum experience, or taking an internship with an organization related to your intended career field. Our program is designed to give you options so you can customize your degree to fit your goals — review sample Course Sequences below.
Full-time students complete the degree in two years, and part-time study is available. See complete Admissions & Course Requirements.
