The Certificate in Human Rights is designed to help you broaden your understanding of human rights and to draw on multiple disciplines in order to identify solutions to human rights issues.
Human rights concern the inherent dignity of all people and the promotion and protection of that dignity regardless of an individual’s birth, color, culture, gender, nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, or other status.
The certificate program is open to current UI undergraduate students and to all individuals who hold a bachelor's degree and are not enrolled in a UI graduate or professional degree program.
Individuals must declare their intent to earn the certificate. See the Certificate in Human Rights website for details.
The University of Iowa provides a variety of scholarships to eligible undergraduate students through the Iowa Scholarship Portal. Scholarships are available to first-year, transfer, and currently enrolled students. For additional details on scholarships for your program of study, check directly with the department or college.
Course work for the certificate is drawn from multiple units throughout the University of Iowa and introduces students to human rights theory and practice. Consult with the Certificate in Human Rights adviser to complete a plan of study.
