Human Rights Minor Program

The Human Rights Minor Program is open to all undergraduate students at SJSU, and is a great way for students to add a Minor credential without delaying graduation. The Program provides training in International Human Rights Law, human rights reporting/journalism, and human rights advocacy.

Faculty Led Programs

Human Rights News Network [HRNN] Coordinator, Halima Kazem-Stojonovic will lead a FLP to the major centers of international law in Geneva (UN High Commissioner for Human Rights), Amsterdam (The Hague and International Criminal Court), and New York City (U.N.). This FLP program is designed for students to engage in national and international human rights research and reporting while producing meaningful, relevant content for dissemination through the HRNN.
