Human Rights

Turkey

Turkey

The Human Rights minor provides students with both intellectual and practical opportunities to engage with human rights in preparation for encountering a wide variety of twenty-first century political issues, social problems, and employment opportunities. The curriculum is distinctively interdisciplinary, mirroring the world of human rights today. By studying abroad students can get a first hand perspective of the efforts of Human Rights advocates around the globe such as Autonomous University of Social Movements in Cuba, Mexico or Brazil. 

Students interested in combining their study abroad experience with an internship, or those looking to focus solely on an internship, have many options. Customized internships are available in a few locations through GVSU internships, as well as other programs such as ISA and World Endeavors
