Course content

INVESTIGATE INTEGRATION AND CULTURAL DIVERSITY 

Why do people migrate? How do immigrants integrate and develop (new or dual) cultural identities? How do host societies respond to immigrants? Why and when do ethnic and religious differences lead to conflicts and misunderstandings? What are the reasons for prejudice and racism, and how can these negative reactions be minimised?

Topics of high societal significance

In this Master's programme in Migration, Ethnic Relations and Multiculturalism, you will focus on questions of high societal significance and policy relevance that relate to:

  • International migration
  • Integration and cultural identity
  • Development of ethnic relations
  • Management of cultural diversity

The programme addresses these topics from the assumption that systematic understanding of the precursors and processes of migration and integration is essential for the development of adequate policies and interventions in pluralistic societies.

The Master's programme in Migration, Ethnic Relations and Multiculturalism is one of the oldest and most established social science Research Master's programmes in the Netherlands. It has an excellent national and international reputation and has been awarded several high ratings by different organisations in the Netherlands.

The programme’s instructional staff participate in the research groups of the Departments of Interdisciplinary Social Science, Sociology and Methods and Statistics. 

Programme objective

Through your studies, you develop into a well-qualified science practitioner. You will acquire the skills and knowledge to go on to PhD training or a research career outside academia.
