Course summary

Overview

What trends in migration have we seen in recent years? Do some societies facilitate adaptation for migrants better than others? Migration, refugees and forced displacement are some of the most pressing and controversial challenges facing contemporary societies and nation states. Our course uniquely explores the study of migration through a sociological perspective and uses a scientific approach to investigate the key challenges that will shape policy agendas and the impact that this could have around the world.

Our MSc Migration Studies combines insights of sociological theory with the methodological rigour highly in demand by government, NGOs and supranational institutions. Drawing on the expertise of leading researchers, you build the methodological skills needed to conduct your own research and make your own contribution to the field of migration. You gain a critical and coherent perspective on empirical research and examining the key assumptions and ideological underpinnings of qualitative and quantitative research. This course covers a wide range of topics, including:

  • Citizenship and Human rights
  • Welfare
  • Immigration policy
  • Social cohesion and integration
  • Sociological research methods
  • Race, ethnicity and identity
  • Multiculturalism

You also develop a strong theoretical understanding and address key issues surrounding migration.
