MA in Humanitarian Action





ECTS points



The Master Programme in Humanitarian Action (HA) provides students with a broad education and training in the area of international humanitarian action, in which both critical thinking and research skills are emphasised. As part of the programme, the students undertake two semesters of mobility (the second mobility will be available only in academic year 2016/2017), the second of which is an introduction to one's own research in a selected part of the world (Eastern Europe, Latin America, South-East Asia, South Africa, North America), continued during the preparation of the master thesis. The goal is thus to train high level, committed, interdisciplinary trained personnel who can function with enhanced professionalism and full awareness of the social, political, legal, cultural and security environment, and who can provide quality services in the broad field of humanitarian relief, informed on their theoretical insights and humanitarian principles. The programme in HA has both specialised and interdisciplinary dimensions and offers education primarily in the area of political science and law, but also in management, anthropology and public health. Moreover, the curriculum offers several practical elements (i.e. simulations, obligatory internship) which enhances the graduates' prospects on the job market.
The Programme is offered jointly by the Faculty of Law and Administration and the Faculty of Political Science and International Relations (Institute of International Relations), in cooperation with partner universities associated in NOHA (Network on Humanitarian Action).
