The program is right for you if you are pre-law, or study political science, international relations, government, human rights, or global studies. The real world experience you gain in this course is highly valuable if you are interested in applying to law school.

During my study tour, I was honored to hear stories from the Bosnian genocide, retold by people who experienced it. Coming to Sarajevo motivated me to pursue humanitarian law beyond DIS.”
