Summary

Our Master's degree in Migration Studies will introduce you to the main challenges and opportunities associated with the advent of new migration and super-diversity and equip you with the skills and knowledge you will need to address those challenges.

As a result of globalisation, many countries have entered an era of superdiversity with societies more diverse in terms of ethnicity, and immigration status, than ever before. The major policy issue is not whether we should be tough on migration, but how we can better integrate new migrants and long established communities into their chosen societies, in a way that promotes social solidarity and inclusion.

Our Master's degree in Migration Studies will examine the social, economic and political impacts of international migration and examine current, proposed and ideal approaches to welfare provision in the era of superdiversity. Migration Studies is unique in bringing together theory and practice with cutting-edge research and research methods to enable you to develop applied knowledge in a rapidly evolving field. It will explore data to help map superdiverse populations and examine the rights and entitlements of migrants in different societies. On the Migration Studies course you will have the opportunity to apply to undertake a work-based internship in a migration related organisation, as part of the optional Migration and Superdiversity Placement module.

This Migration Studies degree is the first of its kind to focus on superdiversity. You will be taught by academics from the Institute for Research into Superdiversity (IRiS). IRiS is the world’s first research centre to focus on superdiversity and is at the forefront of international migration research. It will offer you a unique opportunity to meet scholars from a wide range of disciplines engaged in research and policy work in migration and superdiversity.
