Human Rights and Human Diversity
Human Rights and Human Diversity (HRHD) addresses the human rights revolution in Canada and around the world. It prepares you for careers and further study by equipping you with an understanding of human rights (their origins, the laws and institutions designed to protect them, the range of rights, and controversial issues), human diversity (the forces and processes that are diversifying societies, policies that have been put in place to manage and accommodate diversity, as well as issues and opportunities that are accompanying diversity) and transferable skills that employers are seeking.
Laurier Brantford's HRHD single and combined honours programs examine the key forces that will shape students' futures as individuals, workers and Canadians. The program is designed to provide an understanding of the origins and the laws and institutions designed to protect human rights as well as the processes diversifying cultures and the policies that have been put in place to manage and accommodate this diversity.
To add to your HRHD degree, we offer specializations in international development and non-profit career skills. You may also be able to take Community and Social Service Management or Human Resource Management graduate certificates through Conestoga College – while you're still at Laurier.
Community Service-Learning (CSL) offers you the opportunity to integrate service in the community with academic content. Through service-learning placements or projects at local organizations, you will fuse classroom learning with hands-on experience. You can do CSL through HR261 and HR319, as well as through electives.
