Explore issues of governance, rights and diversity that shape migrants’ life chances. You'll examine migration processes and their consequences for today’s societies. Teaching is interdisciplinary, drawing insights from sociology, human geography, anthropology, development studies, politics, law, psychology, education, economics and demography.

You will have the opportunity to pursue your interests. You can explore topics including:

  • transnationalism, migration and development
  • governance and human rights
  • refugees, citizenship, integration and cultural diversity.

We have strong links with government bodies, international organisations and NGOs. This includes the Department for International Development (DFID), the International Organization for Migration and Refugee Action. This MA also draws on the expertise of the Sussex Centre for Migration Research, located within the School of Global Studies.
