This programme offers a unique range of courses that will deepen students' knowledge of migration and mobility issues and help them gain new insight into public policy responses to international migration at the global, regional, national and local level. A systematic multidisciplinary approach to central controversies in the comparative analysis of public policy responses to immigration and migrant integration issues across different levels of governance, including a focus on the growing role of the EU in European and international migration management.
The programme is divided into three parts: foundation – two half unit courses which provide a thorough grounding in immigration and migrant integration issues; specialisation – through a wide range of optional migration- and migration-related courses offered across LSE; and research – a 10,000 word research project on an advanced topic. Students will also have the opportunity to attend and participate in the established public lecture and seminar series organised by the LSE Migration Studies Unit.
Additionally, if your timetable allows, it is recommended that you take the non-assessed course Interdisciplinary Research Methods and Design in preparation for your dissertation.
The programme provides an outstanding preparation for further research work or for a career in international institutions, the public services, NGOs or with one of the growing number of organisations in the private sector that are concerned with immigration issues.
