About the MSc Programme

The MSc International Migration and Public Policy programme provides 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.

The programme is administered by the European Institute, which is a dedicated centre for the interdisciplinary study of processes of integration and fragmentation within Europe. The programme is also jointly offered with the Department of Sociology and the Department of Government. As well as benefiting from expertise from the Departments of Government, Sociology and the European Institute, you will have the opportunity to attend and participate in the established public lecture and seminar series organised by the LSE Migration Studies Unit. You will also have the advantage of studying at an international campus in close proximity to national policy-makers, offices of international organisations and EU institutions.

The programme offers a unique range of courses that will deepen your knowledge of migration and mobility issues and help you gain new insight into public policy responses to international migration at the global, regional, national and local levels. You will also focus on the growing role of the EU in European and international migration management.

The MSc programme is divided into three parts: foundation (two half-unit courses which provides 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).

You will also take the non-assessed course 'Engaging with Europe: Professional Skills', which is a programme of guest lectures from distinguished outside speakers, including business leaders and policy-makers and is designed for your professional development.
