About the Center


The Center for Human Rights of the College of Arts and Letters (CAL) at San Diego State University (SDSU) supports and promotes human rights research and education at SDSU, as well as opportunities for engagement with human rights organizations in San Diego County and in the San Diego-Tijuana binational area and beyond.

The center offers a Certificate in Human Rights that is open to all majors.  It seeks to expand the understanding of human rights in a range of evolving social and regional contexts through a meaningful course of study.  The films and speaker series organized by the center enrich students’ educational experience and awareness of pressing human rights issues that we face locally, nationally, and globally.
