Human Rights

Established in 1978, the Institute for the Study of Human Rights (ISHR) at Columbia University is committed to providing excellent human rights education to Columbia students, fostering innovative interdisciplinary academic research, and offering its expertise in capacity building to human rights leaders, organizations, and universities around the world. Courses include active engagement with the world of human rights practitioners, and emphasize the connection between the study and practice of human rights.

Courses can be taken independently or as part of a four-course Certification of Professional Achievement in Human Rights.

Note: The Summer Sessions courses in Human Rights are offered in conjunction with the ISHR at Columbia University.
