Masaryk University is located in the judicial capital of the Czech Republic, making it a perfect location to study law. This online course takes students through different aspects of international law and how human rights intersect with it. Students will have virtual site visits to the UN in Vienna and Radio Free Europe to discuss how Human Rights intersects with their fields.

Why this program: This online course seeks to not only expand students’ academic knowledge, but also seeks to pull on the strengths of having students from all over the world enrol. The course will encourage students to learn not just from esteemed professors and current members of the court, but also from their peers through in class discussions and group projects.

Please note that there is an enrollment capacity of 10 students for this virtual program. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until the June 1 deadline.

Course Description

Academics: Online classes will take place at 09:00 CET Monday-Friday for two hours. Classes are structured as discussions and students are expected to participate in the live lectures. This course stands out from other online courses with its emphasis on seminar style discussion.

General: Virtual site visits will be arranged with the UN in Vienna and Radio Free Europe, among others. These will take place after the class time.
