Max available positions
Children are the future but also the present, they must be respected as social subjects with own views, ideas and feelings. Children should have the possibility to play an active and responsible role in their environments. Therefore it is necessary to protect their rights and to ensure their full implementation. If children’s rights are to be implemented, this world will be a different one. Studying the MACR will enable you to contribute to making this a reality. The M.A. in Childhood Studies and Children’s Rights was launched for the first time in October 2007. Originally the master was called: European Master in Childhood Studies and Children's Rights (EMCR). It is possible to enrol in the programme each Wintersemster. The Master lasts 3 semester (courses start in October).
