How to Major or Minor in Human Rights

The requirements for a major or minor in Human Rights are detailed here, in the Monash Handbook, along with a full list of units that can be studied as electives.

The basic gist is that in order to complete a major, students need to complete at least eight six-point units, including both 1st year gateway units, at least one 2nd year cornerstone unit, and at least one 3rd year capstone unit.

In order to complete a minor, students must complete at least four six-point units, including both 1st year gateway units.
