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 development, rights and diversity that shape migrants’ life chances.
You have the opportunity to follow your own interests within migration, development, human rights and refugees, or within migration, ethnicity, cultural diversity and rights.
This MA draws on the expertise of the Sussex Centre for Migration Research.
How will I study?
Across the autumn and spring terms, you learn through core modules and options. You also take a module that prepares you for further research and a professional career. This is delivered as a series of workshops including one that prepares you for your dissertation.
In the summer term, you undertake supervised dissertation work or a dissertation with placement.
You are assessed by term papers, unseen exams, a case analysis on research methods and a 10,000-word dissertation.
