ISHR’s summer program, developed in conjunction with Columbia University’s School of Continuing Education, emphasizes the interaction between human rights theory and practice and offers students the opportunity to explore human rights both inside and outside the classroom.
Courses may be taken independently or as part of the four-course Human Rights Summer Certification of Professional Achievement. All human rights summer courses are offered at the 4000-level for academic credit and are open to non-degree, degree, and visiting students.
Throughout the summer, students are invited to attend discussions, trainings, performances, films, and other events that engage with the human rights community in New York City. Students also have the opportunity to learn from human rights practitioners through in-class guest lectures and optional site visits to human rights organizations.
