Until recently, there was one Master International and European Law where you could choose between the two tracks European Union Law and International Law and Human Rights. From next year on, the Master International and European Law is distinguished in two master programs: European Union Law and International Law and Human Rights.
The International Law and Human Rights track is for students that want to specialize in global international law challenges, for instance in health, freedom and environmental challenges. Following the Master International Law and Human Rights will provide you with thorough knowledge of international law and human rights law, both are increasingly used as a corrective mechanism at national and international levels.
The Master’s program International Law and Human Rights consists of a minimum of 60 ECTS, from which 18 ECTS consists of compulsory courses, 24 ECTS consists of elective courses and 18 ECTS consists of the Master’s thesis. Each course consists of 6 ECTS. The three compulsory courses are: Human Rights Law, International Law in Context, and History and Theory of International Law. In the fall semester you can choose the following elective courses: European Migration Law, International and European Environmental Law, International Arbitration Law, International Criminal Law, International Law: Research Seminars, and International Relations in Historical Perspective. In the spring semester you can choose the following elective courses: Climate Law, Human Rights: Current Issues, International Labour Law and Globalisation, International Law: Research Seminars, and Protection of Minorities and Indigenous People.
