Introduction

The master's degree in Citizenship and Human Rights: Ethics and Politics offers specific training in ethics, politics and philosophy of law to provide students with the skills to understand and to take decisions regarding human rights and democratic policies, problems related to coexistence in today's multicultural contexts, subjectivity and identity, and the dilemmas encountered in bioethics and biopolitics.
The degree is intended for graduates from a wide range of disciplines in humanities, law and social sciences, as well as those with a background in medicine and health sciences, and enables students to complete their education in one of the programme's areas of specialization and conduct preliminary research with a view to continuing to the doctoral programme. This multidisciplinary approach has proved highly successful in allowing students to meet their academic and research goals.

Learning objectives

The general objective of this master's degree is to provide specialized training in ethics, politics and philosophy of law, giving students the skills to understand and to take decisions regarding human rights and democratic policies, problems related to coexistence in today's multicultural contexts, subjectivity and identity, and the dilemmas encountered in bioethics and biopolitics.
The programme has a dual focus: the primary and basic focus is research, while the supplementary optional focus is professional. There are three reasons for the emphasis on research: the need to gain greater insight into the major problems of coexistence and social and political organization in the contemporary world from an academic viewpoint; the applicability of this research to the life of institutions and associations active in this area in Western countries today, and the benefits to be gained from training students to enter professional practice and, particularly, to work in academia.
In addition, the master's degree recognizes the desire of most students to carry out placements or pursue training to become educators. As such, students have the opportunity to enrol in optional subjects entailing placements in institutions or specific preparation as educators.
