New Human Rights Double Master’s Degree with Strasburg University

UZH’s Faculty of Law has partnered with France's prestigious Université de Strasbourg to offer a comprehensive, English-taught, Double Degree Master's program with a strong focus on human rights. 

With Strasbourg serving as the headquarters of the European Court of Human Rights, students of the program “Human Rights Law in a Changing World” gain exposure to international human rights mechanisms and engage with real-world human rights challenges. 

With a longstanding relationship dating back to 2009, UZH and Université de Strasbourg have seamlessly integrated this Double Degree program into their existing cooperation framework. As active members of the esteemed League of European Research Universities (LERU) network, both institutions leverage their strong connection to foster academic excellence, promote cross-cultural exchange, and enhance the quality of education offered through this groundbreaking program.

The double degree Master's programs conducted jointly with partner faculties offer students the opportunity to expand and deepen their knowledge of the Swiss legal system as well as the legal system of the country of the respective partner faculty and international law. Participants acquire two Master's degrees ("Master of Law UZH" as well as the corresponding academic degree of the partner faculty) after a standard period of study of two years. Besides Strasbourg, students can choose between eight other partner faculties in the world, providing students with diverse perspectives and enriching academic experiences.
