The Vienna Master of Arts in Applied Human Rights builds on years-long experience in the field of national and international university education and training in human rights.
The people behind the Vienna Master came together from various academic, professional and personal backgrounds enriching the program with different experiences and perspectives. What unites us is our dedication to the promotion of human rights values and standards. Driven by compassion, empathy, critical and innovative thinking, the team sees its mission to accompany its students in becoming the change-makers they aspire to be.
The teaching facutly is made up of academics and experts from various fields of human rights such as torture prevention, women’s rights, children’s rights, LGBTI rights, rights of persons with disabilities as well as professional artists and academics in the fields of visual arts, cinematography, music, dance, design and architecture.
The program truly cares for the individual’s growth but also the class’ exploring and learning experiences. This can only be achieved through the dynamic exchange of diverse academic, professional and personal experiences amongst staff, faculty and students. The unique learning experience we offer to our students enables the inspiring, powerful and motivated group of students to form a strong, creative and fruitful network of change-makers.
The list of lecturers below is not exhaustive and keeps on growing.
The Vienna Master goes beyond the education, training and formation of innovative human rights practitioners. It creates an interconnected and powerful network of change-makers spanning over all continents working on a multitude of projects in the diverse fields of human rights.
Our alumni form a human rights community that actively and tirelessly contribute to making the world a better place.
At the Vienna Master we believe in equal access to education and self-realization. Our funders, whom we see as our companions in the strife for bettering the human rights situation worldwide, know and value the access to higher education and the transformative change it brings to an individual’s life and the society as a whole. Our scholarships empower inspiring people, who otherwise would not have been able to undertake the Vienna Master due to financial challenges.
The tuition-fee waivers are funded by generous donations of our companions. We want to wholeheartedly thank them for not only believing in the program and our students, but also in change through human rights education.
