The Emory Graduate Certificate in Human Rights is an integrated, innovative, and cooperative approach to human rights scholarship and training. The certificate combines the teaching and research strength of Emory University with the applied programs of Emory's professional partners, including CARE USA, The Carter Center, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention among others. The Certificate is available to students in all of Emory's professional schools, pending approval by each school, and is awarded by each professional school.
The Human Rights Certificate is overseen by the Executive Director of the Emory Institute for Human Rights, Dabney Evans, a faculty member at the Rollins School of Public Health. The certificate is available to students in all of Candler's degree-seeking programs and only awarded in conjunction with a Candler degree.
Students are required to complete 3 courses and a practicum or final paper. The director approves the available courses and the practicum, and confirms that requirements have been met.
