Rapid E-Courses on Human Rights

HREA offers short on-line courses introducing human rights topics. These rapid e-courses take between 3 and 5 hours to complete, yet are completely self-paced and thus can be spread out over days or even months depending on the situation of the learner. The rapid e-courses combine readings with rich multimedia, including videos and podcasts. To successfully complete each course, learners have to pass assessments throughout the course. Upon completion, learners receive a certificate of completion (no academic credits).

Tuition for each rapid e-course is US$ 75. Tuition payments can be made on-line by credit card (MasterCard and VISA) or PayPal.
