Course Summary

Are you involved in - or contemplating - working with migrants, refugees, and asylum seekers?

Our course will broaden your understanding of the relevant theories, concepts, and policies. We help you examine migration processes and their consequences for today’s societies. You’ll explore issues of governance, rights and diversity that shape migrants’ life chances.

You can pursue your interests, exploring topics such as transnationalism, migration and development, governance, human rights, refugees, citizenship, integration and cultural diversity.

This MA draws on the expertise of the Sussex Centre for Migration Research.

Careers

Our graduates are well prepared for PhD research and careers in:

  • international organisations and NGOs (such as UNHCR)
  • local government authorities
  • charities with a migration focus (such as the Refugee Council).

Modules

This introductory core module examines a wide range of theoretical and conceptual frameworks for studying migration and ethnic relations. Starting from the perspective that migration is one of the key drivers of globalisation and the transformation of contemporary societies, it examines the consequences of migration for people in both sending and receiving societies.
