MA promises to help ensure a “Catholic voice” present in rights discussions.
A new program in human rights is being started at The Catholic University of America.
A Master of Arts in Human Rights, developed by the Institute for Human Ecology (IHE) at CUA, is designed for graduate students who wish to study human rights from a distinctly Catholic perspective.
The one-year degree will draw upon existing courses of several schools and departments at CUA, including arts and sciences, law, philosophy, canon law, theology and religious studies. The interdisciplinary degree will be awarded by the School of Arts and Sciences through a new Center for Human Rights associated with the IHE.
