Applications will shortly open for the MSc in Migration Studies which is taught by world-class researchers from Oxford’s internationally renowned centres researching voluntary and economic migration: IMI and the Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS).
The course provides a broad, theoretical understanding of human mobility and the role of both internal and international migration in the wider processes of development, social change and globalisation, as well as an overview of the major debates and literature on contemporary migration from different disciplinary perspectives. You will gain skills in critical analysis and research, and should develop an ability to contribute new perspectives to the study of migration. You should also gain an understanding of the dilemmas facing policy-makers at both national and international level and the ability to help transfer theoretical knowledge to policy-oriented research.
The three application deadlines are 12 noon UK time (midday) on:
- Friday 20 November 2015
- Friday 22 January 2016
