Ohio College to Offer Human Rights Degree

clipped from www.newsnet5.com
Amnesty International, the Red Cross and other humanitarian groups will soon have a fresh source of manpower when the University of Dayton begins offering a bachelor's degree in human-rights studies next fall.

The private, Catholic university said the degree program is designed to prepare students for careers in human-rights advocacy and humanitarian assistance as well as law school or other advanced study.

Only a few U.S. universities offer degree programs in human-rights studies.

Karen Robinson, director of human-rights education for Amnesty International U.S.A., said she hopes that formalizing the study of human rights with a bachelor's degree program results in a deeper understanding of what human rights are.
