Program Overview

Students who earn the certificate for this concentration will learn critical and foundational concepts in international human rights, tax and criminal law, and will put theory into practice during experiences in places like Ireland and Nicaragua. To enrich this program and to provide a real world connection for your studies, we have forged collaborative partnerships with the Albert Schweitzer Institute at Quinnipiac, the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates, the Oxford Human Rights Seminar, the United Nations and other important international partners.

Students develop literacy in the language of international relations that prepares them to advocate, negotiate, mediate and litigate globally as well as locally. Students put theory into practice by participating in our established international programs or by arranging an externship, which can include placement virtually anywhere in the world.

International experiences combined with externship opportunities provide a path to expansive career options.
