Human Rights Minor
The Human Rights Minor at UMass Boston is an interdisciplinary program of study open to students from all disciplines. Housed in the Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, the minor emerged from the student-faculty-community collaboration of the Human Rights Working Group, which seeks to foster and sustain a human rights community on campus and beyond.
Science, Medicine & Society: Past & Present Minor
How are science, technology, and medicine shaped by our society? You can use this new minor to explore those relationships, whether you have a background in the sciences or the humanities. We explore the growth, development, and impact of technical fields using disciplines from literature to philosophy to history.
