Why study this course?

UWA is the only university in Western Australia that affords undergraduate students the opportunity to undertake a full program of study in human rights. Combining this with the Arts will equip you to think holistically, developing an enhanced awareness of relationships – with oneself, others and the world. You will graduate with two qualifications, having cut two years off the time it takes you to study two degrees. If you decide either degree isn't right for you, you can exit one and complete the other.

What will I learn?

Human Rights provides an understanding about real-world human rights challenges from a wide range of disciplinary perspectives. The Bachelor of Human Rights will give you the capacity to approach complex social and political problems from a range of perspectives.
Combine this with a Bachelor of Arts where you will cultivate your passions while developing transferable skills that are essential in every industry and can never be automated – they’ll set you apart from the competition and prepare you for a future-proof career. 

Course structure

You can combine the Human Rights (Extended Major) from the Bachelor of Human Rights with a wide range of undergraduate majors from the Bachelor of Arts.

You can also include minors and elective units in your degree. Learn more about what makes up your degree with Our Courses Explained.
